Photo Challenge: On the Move

22 Comments

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is “on the move.”  I immediately thought of the metro system in Washington DC, the long escalators down to the train platforms, the swish of wind just before the train arrives, the lights glowing then speeding away.  But I’ve shown you all of that.  And I thought about going down to Detroit and showing you the People Mover, Detroit’s version of mass transit, and some day I will.

But for this challenge I went a bit more natural, and headed out to my favorite park – a place I used to run every weekend when I was training for an event, and a place that still holds my heart.  It was a beautiful day and I have so much to show you, but for this, a photo challenge, I’m choosing just one.

 

Moving through green hills.

Moving through green hills.

I sat in cool tall grass high on a hill and watched the runners bikers and walkers as they made their way around the base of the hill through a beautiful meadow.  I could have sat there for hours.  In fact I did.

You can see some favorite on the move entries from others here, here, and here.  These challenges are so much fun for me, especially when I get to go on little photo adventures to find something new.  You should try it for yourself.  You never know what you’ll find until you go out looking.

And soon, I promise you, I’ll show you what else I found at the park.

It was wonderful.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  1. Pawsome picture. Knowing our Mommy, she somehow would have rolled all the way down that hill. Would have made a good “on the move” photo too! Have a great day!

  11. The disappearing curve of the path, the bright green all around picked up on the cyclist, too, make this a perfect photo, Dawn.

  13. Yes, this photo had that on-the-move feeling to it. Was just looking at those you didn’t choose and then had to click over here to see the winner. Wonderful! And it looks so spring-like with the green.
