Whether your own or someone else’s, literal or figurative, take us on a photographic adventure.
Typically, the only time I’m awake when the sun rises is when I’ve failed to go to sleep the night before. Once in a great while, though, I’ll drag my groaning carcass out of bed in the pre-dawn light in search of a good shot.
On one of those rare early mornings, I snapped this photo of paddleboarders heading out to sea for a day’s adventure:
The sun had risen ten or fifteen minutes ago. The morning sky was a pale non-color hovering between blue and grey, as though it were also undecided about whether it wanted to be up that early.
I found myself drawn to the flat, almost monochrome melding of sea and sky, and how it created a massive canvas for the two small figures paddling resolutely forward. They looked as though they were headed into the great wide open, on the start of a grand adventure (which, since they were headed out to sea, I suppose they were). I like to imagine they befriended a narwhal and learned a valuable life lesson from a school of dolphins.
I took a photo and quietly wished them well. And then I walked home and went back to bed for a few more hours, pleased with the morning’s work.
This week, share a photo that says “adventure.” It could be an image of someone setting off on an epic journey, a photo you took on an adventure of your own, or something more metaphoric that represents a personal or psychological adventure. We’re excited to see where you’ll take us!
