The New Normal by CCampbell2, on Flickr

The decay of social interaction. My recent trip to Chicago was filled will passerbys with headphones in and staring down at their phones. Little acknowledgement of others, no friendly greetings. You can stand next to some one for 10 minutes waiting for a bus or a train and never catch eyes.

While thinking about this challenge, I liked how the oak sapling and the Lady slipper are new growth, deriving nutrients from the wood pile that is on its way back to the earth. Fifteen years ago, when my wife and I took responsibility for the small cabin that has been in my family for many years, this wood pile was already so far gone there was no possibility of using it for firewood. I like to think of my grandfather stacking that wood many years ago, intending to return to split it into firewood, but for whatever reason, the wood never got split.

Well, it's June 1, and time to open the voting. The weather in Arkansas has been so lousy lately that I never did get to shoot the shot I had in mind when I came up with the challenge, but I've seen some really creative interpretations. I'm going to study them a little more before I cast my vote, because there are a couple I really like.

I'm voting for Taupe's "Old Water Wheel". Nice image fitting the theme. A nice entry and his first post. Welcome to the group, Taupe.

Usually I prefer color photos over B&W but I find pboerger's stark portrayal of the decomposing house very compelling. That photo gets my vote.
