Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense

John Masefield quote

Navigating Your Way

I found this quote mounted on a wall of the National Maritime Museum (Greenwich) and was drawn to the hope that it held for navigating one’s way through life. As I was trying to capture it, this father and daughter walked past and I took a few photos as I liked the way that they seemed to embody the sentiment being expressed.

As the little girl teetered her way along, her dad would place a hand against her back from time to time to steer her in the direction they needed to go.

But what drew me most was the realisation that parent and child will also be both star and ship to each other as they grow and their relationship develops: potentially acting as motivation and inspiration for each other as the years pass. Something about that thought makes me smile.
You can see how other bloggers responded to the challenge at The Daily Post
