Where Are We Going?

This is a stunning photograph isn’t it?  As I have delved deeper into the art that is photography, I have noticed something.  Much like music can, the right scene in a photograph can evoke an emotional response.  For me, this scene is no different.  The fog, the dirt road, the curvature up ahead.  They all can have meaning associated to them in my personal life.  Of course the photographer doesn’t know me, and I am sure their reasons for taking such a shot are far different from the ones I associate with the picture.

I think that is part of what makes a photograph so powerful though.  It is that ability for the scene to tap into our own experience, our own situation to make a static image come to life within the scope of our own lives.  Yes this image holds a lot of symbolism for my personal life now.  How about you?

    I think this represents everyone’s life. No matter how sure we are of where we’re headed, what our goals are, how promising (or frightening) things look, none of us can see into the future, or know what would have been, had we changed directions at any point in our past. There’s no telling what tomorrow, or even the next five minutes will bring. So personally, my goal is to enjoy the scenery I CAN see. And if you were to take this analogy and apply my life to that photo, the scenery is indeed something to dwell on. Gorgeous.
