YIELD. What a strange word. Im not sure if I’ve ever heard it used any where other than these signs. It can be a bit confusing at times, its not quit stop.. but not quit go either. Maybe thats why from my experience most people just ignore them and drive right on through. We obviously know the sign and what it means, however we often don’t give it much attention. It asks us to slow down and observe our surroundings before moving forward, yet were often to busy with our lives that we give it a quick “eh thats good enough” adjustment of our speed and keep on going.
This happens often in other areas of our lives as well, we get thrown a “Yield Signs” at various times and just keep on going. Life try’s to get us to slow down and appreciate and observe the surrounding, the moment, the now. But we are in such a hurry to get on with life, so we completely blow by the “sign” an give that “eh, good enough”. When we do that, we miss out on the beauties the world has to offer on a daily basis.
I love the simplicity of this photo, with just 3 key elements, as well as the bold red that contrasts the whole scene just beautifully. This is right at the corner of my block, and the snow has really just really helped to add magic to everything around. Its been so wonderful being able to capture some of it through the lens!
