Different paces of life

Yesterday, I once again found myself in town … with a couple of hours to spend before going home again. As usual, I brought my camera with me, despite not feeling inspired, and took a few photos while walking around. I classify them as “learning photos”, a more polite way of saying that none of them were any good, but they serve as reminders of what I could improve until next time … which will be tomorrow (I have to spend a couple of morning hours in town while waiting for the car to get serviced).

Anyway, when I got home I started to look at the photos and there were two that got me thinking about different stages of life. The first is of a mother (I assume) with her child speeding along the street. I assume they were going to the daycare or to visit a doctor (there is a doctor’s office further down the street). A typical day in a parents’ life.

And the other photo was of this gentleman who was standing beside the street, looking like he waited for something/someone, perhaps a taxi or a ride home.

To me, this illustrates two different phases of life with very different paces. I hope that all three of them take the time to enjoy where they are in life.
