This photo challenge was definitely challenging! To illustrate Resolved in a photo proved much more difficult than I thought, or maybe I just simply didn’t have anything in my photo collection to do the job (or lacked the imagination to take an appropriate picture). In the end, my wife suggested I look Resolve(d) up in the dictionary and see what, if any, definitions would work with what I have. Here’s what I came up with for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Resolve.
All definitions are from the Merriam-Webster <additional examples by me>.
2 a : break up, separate <the prism resolved the light into a play of color> <the sunlight was resolved into a rainbow on the stormy sea>; also : to change by disintegration
5 : to reach a firm decision about <resolve to get more sleep> <resolve disputed points in a text> <Richard is Resolved that Tim and Mike are lost>
7 : to make (as voice parts) progress from dissonance to consonance <no real dissonance with this local band, just good music>
1 : to become separated into component parts; also : to become reduced by dissolving or analysis <the millennia-old mixture of ice and earth become resolved into water and mud as the glacier calves>
