Muse on Monday – September 5, 2022

No matter where you live or what your life is like, there is always beauty that pops up. Admittedly, if you live in a Swiss mountain valley, there might be more than if you live in a sewer, but there is nowhere without any beautify if you have the eyes to see it.

This is a picture I took on my way to work this week. I was just coming to my office when this road crew was cutting the pavement to repave a section. The sun just happened to make it a good picture. It’s also a good one for Labor Day, which it is in the US today. If you have the day off, have a great day (have a great day even if you don’t have a holiday, of course)

  1. This picture is wild. Has a Close Encounters of the Third Kind feeling to it. that leg hanging out as if it were an accident that just happened while that light is an explosion. It’s a great photo that looks more sinister than legit even though it was nothing out of the ordinary, but then again, your eye is anything but. πŸ™‚

    I could see either hope or despair coming from this picture. Stark duality due to what perspective you seek.
