Two Things Challenge: New / Hope
This week's Two Things Challenge was New / Hope. Originally, I was going to do something along the lines of Barack Obama's use of the word "Hope" in his campaign, but then I couldn't find anything for that. What I finally narrowed it down to was a mix of secular and religious interpretations. For New, I chose this picture (see below) of my new color printer and the latest book I bought yesterday.
For Hope, I've chosen two photos I took at the National Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. In the crypt church on the lower level are a number of chapels. These two pictures are of the Hope Chapel. The chapel is dedicated to Our Lady of Hope and the money to build the chapel was given by Bob and Dolores Hope in memory of his mother, Avis Townes Hope.
Want to see how others interpreted this challenge? Would you like to participate? You can do both by visiting Two Things Challenge.
