Random Flickr Image 2193

Tom at If I Ran the Zoo originated the idea of Random Flickr blogging. Here's how it works:

Every week, we all start with the same randomly-generated four-digit number (call it ####).
Participants go to Flickr and search for "IMG_####". There are anywhere from a few hundred to a couple thousand results. One chooses an image or two from among the results posts it to his/her blog (along with attribution and a link back to the page where the image appears)--The blogger then writes about the image. The writer can make up a story about it, connect it to some issue, or just post it as an image he/she really likes.

This week the image # is 2193. Flickr had over 7000 images with this number. I chose three that illustrate Robert Frost's poem, "Nothing Gold Can Stay."

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
