Ailsa at wheresmybackpack? has posted our weekly Travel Theme: Leading Lines. Her own examples are photos that all have a strong physical line that grabs the focus of the shot and leads our eyes there, and our challenge is to find our own leading lines.
Ah, if only life were that simple, with clear leading lines taking us forward or showing us the way we’re meant to go!
Like the road to the Golden Gate Bridge, our path north to Marin County…
… or this road at the Beijing Olympic Park, leading to the Water Cube (and beyond to additional events and venues). But wait, there’s a line of Umbrellas alongside, enticing us off the road, to the shade and a cool drink…
And sometimes the line isn’t straight at all, and the final destination isn’t clear. Those are the times when the trek may be more difficult, but also more interesting!
Every life has opportunity for a variety of journeys. Sometimes the clearly directed path is the right one, and then, sometimes, we’re meant to digress from the main highway to see what lies beyond.
“…I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. “
Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken
