A Photographic Contemplation

Into the Unknown

Today after work, I had the opportunity to go and see a show at an art gallery that a friend's mother had done. It was really cool to be able to go and spend time looking at some wonderful impressionist paintings. I really left the event inspired, and hoping that somehow I might be able to find more creativity in my photography. As I was walking from the show to my car, I had the moment to catch this photograph. To me, it was an emotional moment. At this point in my life, I can relate to the person in the photograph on several different planes. Going from darkness to light, headed into new and great things, but not totally knowing what lies in the path ahead. One of the greatest challenges in living life is learning how to face uncertainty with courage and sureness. We may not know where the path may lead, but we can brave the unknown, learn our lessons, and become all the stronger for it. My stream of conscious writing probably isn't the greatest, but the photo has a lot of opportunities for interpretation. It has the power to connect with a person on multiple levels.
