Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.



Zigzag.  I thought it would be hard to find a photo to represent the concept.  I didn’t think I’d find it in nature.  I thought of a few places to go where I might find something, commercial locations, man-made places.  I thought maybe I’d skip this photo challenge because I didn’t have time to go anywhere in search of zigzag.

Then I got out of the car this evening after a long day of work and saw that the hibiscus plant is in bud.  And on the still tightly furled buds were…


…zigzagging veins.

Proof once again that if you just slow down and take a moment you can find just about anything.

Right there in front of you.

You can see other zigzags here, here, here, and here.   And of course the classic zigzag.   Or stop by the original blog entry and look at all the comments with their photos!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

    Aren’t these photo challenges the best for getting you to think outside the box, or at least look at the details? I don’t often participate, but it’s fun when I do 🙂
