The Road Ahead


Remember when Alice was lost on Wonderland? She serendipitously stumbled upon The Cheshire Cat and admitted innocently, “I am lost and not sure which way to go.” With a grin, The Cheshire Cat responded with a question of his own: “Where do you want to go?” To which Alice responded, “I am not quite sure.”

Grinning from ear to ear, th insightful cat dropped some clever wisdom and said: “If you’re not sure where you’re going, then any road will take you there.” We each have a quest… it’s about taking our own road, finding our own adventure, and enjoying our journey. Remember, unless you are willing to walk into the unknown, th chances of making a profound difference in your life is pretty slim….so dive in! Perhaps this very instant is your time!

This image is of the icon Flatiron Building in NYC. The Yellow Cab zooming to destinations unknown seemed appropriate to this post. The motion blur was created by using a slow shutter speed with the camera mounted sturdily on a portable tripod balanced on a trash can. To avoid giggling the camera, a remote shutter release was used. The image was post processed from a RAW file using Photomatix to enhance the dynamic range of the available light.

    Au hazard, j’ai commencé à photographier pour le parti du président français, un photo-reportage, qui ne sera peut-être plus le président de la république…

    J’ai mon perroquet sur l’ordinateur quand j’écris ceci…

    Looks like getting the corner office in that building isn’t such a great thing.
