Stairway to .... possibilities


Sydney - Wharf Area (4), originally uploaded by mindy_w.

The thing about stairs is that they start somewhere and they generally lead you to a destination. They are used as a mechanism to deliver you to an end point. So much we concentrate about the destination, but not on the journey.

The picture is framed in a way that does not cap where the stairway ends, it could continue in a different direction, it could stop.

i need to constantly remind myself that in life, it is the journey that matters and to enjoy the view throughout. It's not about constantly climbing the proverbial 'ladder' - sorry mixed metaphors - don't you hate that? It's about learning, experiencing and being fulfilled by the things that happen to you during.

Photo Details
This was taken around the Rocks, where Sydney Dance Company is and Wharf 8. It was a really nice crisp day with not many people around. This is an HDR using Photo Matix and Photoshop Elements 7.0
