I wanted so bad to get a good image for this challenge. I don't know if this one is it.

I was down in Denver this afternoon looking for something to correlate with this challenge. It was on the verge of rain so my time was limited. This man was standing as still as a statue. I don't know what he was doing, but it seemed to me, he might be taking his mental journey to someplace better than his current surroundings. It reminded me of the poem, and the old man wanting to leave his country and his aged body. The statue in the foreground happens to be a symbol for truth and justice in front of the Wellington Webb City of Denver building.

My first entry with my new M Monochrome.

He does look like he is waiting at the starting line. Nicely captured.

Nicely captured. Good choice to use B&W, and I like the giant face and how it relates to the rest of the scene. I can't quite understand how it relates to the theme, though.

someone seems reluctant to begin moving ...
