Weekly Photo Challenge: Journey

I took this photo on a trip to England, but the journey I hoped to capture did not involve putting one foot in front of the other.

    Naomi, this is beautiful. I think I could tell a story based on this picture, especially based on your light source and angle.

    1. Thank you, Katie. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I believe the best photos tell stories. It is a fortunate person who, like you, can read the stories in the world all around you. You will never be bored!

        As in Bea’s latest post! Sometimes it’s hard for me to access that mindspace that keeps me from being bored, but it’s getting easier and easier the more I try.

  3. Bea nailed it. You might want to check out my post called The Writer’s Egg Chain, as it talks about organizing different writing projects in your mind. I go to my Egg Chain and think about story ideas while gardening or walking or waiting or showering.

    “…the journey did not involve putting one foot in front of the other.” I won’t forget that analogy. The trick is to suggest. You have it, Child. And, it tickles me to see it! 🙂

    1. Dear George, you are so sweet! I think it takes one to know one. You have been blowing me away with your amazing writing. Thanks for visiting and for your comment–it made me smile.

    Our journey from life to death – one we do not often think about.

    I like your interpreation, Naomi.

    1. Thanks, Lynne. I am so glad to have discovered the Weekly Photo challenge. It makes me look at things just a little differently. I appreciate your stopping by.

  8. Why one foot in front of the other? Why not just peace and tranquility? I also like the darkness(frame) around the picture on the left hand side. I’m assuming it is a tree but it certainly give the impression of a keyhole look inside the graveyard.

    1. Hi Tess, that is why I said this journey is NOT one foot in front of the other. There was such a tranquil peaceful feeling about the place, and that is what prompted me to take the photo. It made me feel that it was a spiritual journey, rather than a physical one. Thanks so much for stopping by.
