Saturday, February 23: This week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is FORWARD.
In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says FORWARD to you.
Perhaps it’s a path you yourself have taken, the building where you’re starting a great new job, or the curve of your partner’s pregnant belly. It could be an image that shows a physical move, or something that evokes a major life change.
Here are some pictures of a 15 km hike I took in January from Nagarkot to Changu Narayan outside the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal. Twice during this walk, I came across women walking forward carrying burdens of tree branches larger than they were. I couldn’t even see their faces, just their feet moving, moving, moving. Forward. I actually tried to run to get ahead of them and take front view pictures, but I couldn’t catch them! I’m sure they couldn’t wait to release their burdens.
The views were beautiful. My legs were aching, but I kept moving forward down the path, until we reached our destination of Changu Narayan.
I’ll post more on this hike in the coming weeks. 🙂
