If you have visited Hong Kong you probably know about the escalators and the fact that they only work in one direction on certain times of the day. For some hours of the day they only take people downhill, while then later in the day they will only take you up.
In a way it resonates with what life is all about. We encounter moments where everything seems to go downhill only, while in others the only way is up. If we are not aware of the specific times the direction changes we will be taken by surprise. While we can chose by what time we hit the escalators in Hong Kong and therefor are prepared for the direction they will take us, we do not have this luxury in life.
This doesn’t mean though, that we have to let it all drag us down. There is always another way too. Just like with the escalators. Although the ride on them would be the much more comfortable one, we can also just take the stairs, although it means we have to work harder. But it will take us in the direction we want to go and we are no longer just a passive passenger…
This challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, etc. we move from one place to another on. You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible. Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.
