Travel Theme: UP

I smile as I see the subject of this Travel Theme.  Ironically it is a vantage for all my journeys.  At 4’10” EVERYTHING is up!  Through the uniqueness of looking through the camera lens, photo angles speak volumes.  I never stop long enough to evaluate my surroundings.  But then, a still photograph adds dimension to my life.

Interestingly enough, looking up one day I spotted that Time had stopped!  Quite literally, the clock in the clock tower ceased to function.  I looked at my phone, sure enough it was after 6:00pm.  My imagination gave me an eerie feeling.  Time stopped, the oldest spot in the Americas, what is the meaning of this?  There must be some meaning?  I couldn’t be as simple as cost of labour or repairs, could it?  No there had to be a hidden meaning.

I sat for a few moments and pondered the thought.  Mulling over a cerveza and surveying the area I took stock.  An epiphany struck me!      S  L  O  W     D  O  W  N     it seemed to say.  Yes life moves at breakneck speed.

In a way, my UP is a DOWN, a slow down, relax, and see life.  Yes time has stopped here in Parque Colon, manana, is another day.
