putting on the brakes.....

putting on the brakes
... stopping on a dime, preparing to take a new direction.... Wow, it seems I'm into automotive metaphors lately. Just wanted to share this cool shot and then it got me musing on direction, motion and taking drastic steps, like putting on the brakes this strongly. There always seems to be at least a few aspects of life that could use strong brakes or at least better reining. But many times we choose the soft and gentle way to make the change. I'm not sure what is better - maybe they are both right depending on the circumstance. I've got a few direction changes coming up although my brakes won't be nearly this strong. How about you?


tail light....

tail light

..... in motion here. Swoosh! And Swish! The light was so pretty on this softly curving tail in mid-stride ..... but looking at this now, it reminds me to think about: being stuck behind tail lights, what kind of tail lights I am leaving behind for others, what type of tail lights have I been following, forgetting about tail lights and concentrating on headlights, tail lights in motion and tail lights standing still. So many facets to what at first glance seems to be such a simple and ordinary thing, tail lights. What do they make you think of?
