I think one of the most beautiful pictures an individual can capture is the man-made structures of a city at night with all the lights flickering in the distance.
Over the course of the last 4-5 days that I have been here in Chicago, I have logged about 60,000 steps, give or take away a few. When you walk, you see things that you would normally miss when you’re riding the subway, train, bus, or Lyft. Obviously it takes longer, but walking also challengs you to slow down and see people and the enviroment around you. You say hello to those you walk by. You see a person sitting on the curb for hours who is dealing drugs to others. You see the ambulance driving by taking someone to the hospital. You are able to see shops as you walk by that you would like to frequent in the coming days.
Slowing down allows you to see the beauty of the city in the daytime as well.
It has been a wonderful experience so far and I am looking forward to the next few days here before I have to fly back to Arizona.
On this journey we all have places to be and things to see. Slowing down to the simpler ways of movement give our eyes a totally different view of our environment. Take a walk today to see the simple things in life.
