Let me know what you think about this photograph.

Pens:

In the Lens section is my entry for WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Forward. This image of a massive set of neon lights was taken from the vantage point where they lead from one end of a walkway to an exit ahead or a hallway to the side.

The subjectivity of the lights mesmerize me. They are utilitarian objects, design features, and abstractions. My photograph shows this technological feat as reaching forward toward the beginning and away from the end.

This definition of forward implies change and movement and wonder. The known is left behind and the unknown is yet to be. Here the lights eagerly direct and encourage the new. Still, which way is forward, which way to turn?

Thanks again WordPress for the challenge. Clearly,  forward is another word that conjures multiple possibilities.

Note: As always I welcome comments about this post or any part of my blog.

  12. Exquisite. Reminds me of a story regarding two circuit lines of different charges who had an “attraction” towards each other, attempting to reach forward and hold one another. Though they did not know what was going to occur once they touched, their determination is what pushed them to continue and push onwards.

    I love it. This kind of image really appeals me as it looks really abstract. It also works so well in Black and White. Big thumbs up from me.
