Weekly Photo Challenge: Time

This week’s photo challenge is Time.

Guest photo challenge host Lignum Draco asks us to show him the time.

Lignum Draco’s photo is phenomenal. You can see it here.

My offering below is, for me, a kind of zen moment in time. I consider myself time-challenged; a person who is constantly at odds with time, fighting it, running from it or chasing it, except…when I must wait for the railroad crossing.

In the case of this photo, the light rail crossing. I know when I see the flashing reds lights, there simply is no other place that I can be. Surprisingly, I don’t worry about being late or think about what lies ahead. Instead, I just settle in and watch the train. (And in this case, snap a photo!)

I took this photo about a month ago. I suppose my future self knew that I should take this picture for a future challenge. See, it’s about trusting yourself. Perhaps, if you listen, your future self will give you the answers.
