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.

Thank you Ailsa for the inspiration.
