If New Year's Eve is about looking back on the past, "auld acquaintance" and the events of the year just ending, then the early days of the New Year are about looking forward to the challenges and possibilities to the year just starting. But what do we see as we look forward? Can we see the goal clearly, or is there a mountain-sized obstacle in our way? Is our path straightforward, or full of twists and turns? Is it clear sailing ahead, or are there storm clouds on the horizon? Is it going to be an uneventful trip, or a bumpy ride?
Okay, enough with the metaphor. What I'd like to see is photos that look forward, implying movement in that direction. You may be pointing your camera at the road ahead, or looking forward across the bay, lake or ocean from the prow of a ship, or along a crowded sidewalk to a particular landmark up ahead. Get it? And if the photo says something about the way you expect your life to go in 2014, so much the better!
The usual guidelines apply:
1. Grab your camera and bring us one or more pictures that are Looking Forward. Archived photos or videos are okay as long as you took them yourself.
2. RSVP in the comments below with your name and the name and URL of the place you plan to post your photo(s) or video(s).
3. On the Challenge date, Saturday, January 11, 2014, post the results on any blog, social media site or online photo album. Don't forget to link back to here in your entry, so your readers can check out the other Robins' contributions.
4. Please visit the other Robins' entries, and comment if so moved. The list of entries will be posted at the bottom of this entry starting around midnight MST on the Challenge date, and updated through the day.
That's all there is to it! Have fun, and go be photographers! Oh, and Happy new Year!
