motion

We are always moving, from place to place, from moment to moment, forever on a journey to somewhere. Some move fast, others slow and some believe that they are not moving at all, but they are. All things move. Even what we see as still, stationary, dead, that is also moving. Yes, even my cup of coffee near my mac is whizzing at 107,000 km/h around the sun as I type this. Motion, another mystery to dive into…

  5. Motion for its not just a mystery, its believing as well, for we are moving but we don’t know where we are headed, but we like to believe our destination is a better. Great quote as well as picture, made me realize that we are always moving and we are not even taking the time to admire out surroundings, Thanks you!!!

    Check out my blog you might find it interesting http://www.thoughtsunleashed.com

  8. Simple but deep and meaningful.

  9. What’s amazing here is not only the picture but how the author quoted it. Very nice!

  10. Awesome Post. The image you have is very inspiring and I would love to have this on canvas in my “inspiration room”. I love what you have written as there is great truth in the world is forever moving especially how to depict “Some move fast, others slow and some believe that they are not moving at all, but they are. All things move.” – Classic!

  11. Great pic and text!

  12. Great photo, with a thought-provoking comment. What you said about your coffee, initially I thought, “No, it isn’t.” And then I thought, “Oh yeah, it is..” Wow.
    I’ve written two blog posts on songs exploring the idea of direction or no direction, which you’re welcome to read if interested. The first looks at Fyfe Dangerfield’s Any Direction (http://calminthechaotic.wordpress.com/2011/08/22/theres-nothing-new-under-the-sun-but-what-about-above-it/) and the second looks at Absynthe Minded’s There Is Nothing (http://calminthechaotic.wordpress.com/2011/08/22/theres-nothing-new-under-the-sun-but-what-about-above-it/).

  13. Very nice post and very true. We are in constant motion whether we chose to or not.

  14. Oh my gosh! I just noticed you were on Freshly Pressed! CONGRATULATIONS and totally well deserved. Glad I found your blog!

  15. Amazing movement in thought.
    But is it really moving?
    The movement of void and silence.

  16. inspiring reflection there! thank you, and move on 🙂

  17. I was having a conversation with a colleague photographer today (I’m a videomaker) about the different kinds of movements available in video — either camera movement or object/subject movement — and how movement enables the story-builder the time to build story. It’s hard to teach about story with still images, but we were talking about movement and potential movements in photography, and how they can create story, too. Story and movement and time are so intertwined in these image-centric mediums. We had a good twenty-minute conversation about movement in video/photography. I think I’ll send him this blog entry to read.

    Great work. I love looking at great work. Thanks.

  18. Yes,
    everything in the universe is sound moving in different frequencies, the higher the vibration the hotter the substance.

    imagine that, we are all made up of sound 🙂

  19. Thats really great nice photography with a meaningful explanation. Great JOB!!!

  20. Yes, moving but not really like when you are in a car wash and stationary yet you swear you are moving. Terrific picture.

  21. beautiful photo! love it. congrats on fp’ed btw

  22. Sometimes I don’t feel like I’m moving at all, but if your cup of coffee does, then maybe I am too.

    Nice Shot!!!

  23. Love the caption, and the picture

  24. Nice shot! I like how you focused on the fence and then had the man in the background! Nice! Also your words leave a little mystery in your mind, thinking about how you can go so fast but be so slow.
    Thanks for this great post!

  25. I’m not always moving, but everything else is. So watching it all makes me feel as if I am moving.

    Like sitting in a train, being stationery, the train next to you moves, and you’re sure it’s YOUR train that’s on the move.

    • Yes, I know what you mean Ronnie with the trains. I get a sense of imbalance for a brief moment each time that happens. I also feel it on the plane in the runway before take off. Thanks for dropping by!

  26. Your blog is very elegant and I really like this post, it deserves to be freshly pressed.

    Coincidentally, I wrote an article about constant movement recently, in the form of impermanence and change and how we can come to accept it:

    if anyone is interested.

    Keep blogging!

  27. First off, photo is amazing. Second, I would love to muse over motion. Thinking about it gets me into big picture stuff. Like how motion is not always one thing moving from point A to point B. Electrons move spontaneously without a trace of what direction they came from. Get your brain to tap into a different kind of thinking. Try to wrap it around the big picture. Feels good.

  28. So true, and it’s interesting that we don’t even feel the sensation of moving as we orbit the sun.

  29. What a beautiful photograph, thank you for sharing!

  30. love the action! i have a hard time capturing images like that. i’m sure my very amateur status has something to do with it 🙂

  49. After being away, I realize how unique, yet common to Shanghai, is the iron fencing along the streets…love it…and miss it.
