I love this photo! I look at it and see more than just a man on a bike with a lake in the background. I see a man, alone, balancing. A man on a bike witnessing a wild greater than himself; The large lake, the big blue sky, the never ending mountainous landscape, the tall evergreen trees and the last wisps of some fading clouds. I see a man with tense shoulders and feel hopeful that the following breath will soften them. I see a shadow that appears to be larger than the man and yet I see that this man doesn’t notice or quite frankly doesn’t care. I see a man who’s intention was to go straight when life through a lake in his path. Though a road was laid to guide the man around, I see a hesitation and a curiosity to ignore it. I see this photo and I don’t just see a man on a bike with a lake in the background. I see me … all of me.
What do you see?
