Some days, when I’m motivated, I use the prompts for the upcoming Scavenger Hunt Sunday to explore subjects with my camera. One of the words for this weekend is capturing movement. I’ve experimented with slow shutter speeds, even tossing my camera up and down while it shoots multiple shots. This sidewalk image is one of the results of my experiment…and, you know me…it got me to thinking.
Here is a blurred image of a path made smooth so that our feet won’t get in the mud, a path that curves in a lovely way just for decoration, a path that is not required but exists anyway. It leads from the street to my front door, and is probably only used by the postal delivery person… and the cats who live here.
Life paths aren’t always easy to find, at least not those that we think we are supposed to be on. It is so easy to think we should be here or there or where that person is, yet life has a way of putting us where we are for a reason. There are lessons to be learned in this place, on this path, in this moment.
If you were to imagine where this sidewalk could go, where would you like it to take you? Would you stay on this fixed path, or blaze your own trail? What would it be like to just stay with this path and see what comes along?
