Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moment

This is how it is around me.

A Fleeting Moment On the Street is the challenge for this week.

I do not spend much time on the street, but while I covered news for our local newspaper, I did cover a proposition that involved the street, itself, as a fleeting moment.

First , you see the sign for a “fleeting moment” street, for those who can read.

As you can also see, it engenders wrath.

Next is the multi-cultural sign, which includes the non-reading culture, of course. And you also see folks around here have no trouble respecting that one.

The other sign, just in case . . .

Isn’t that how we always are? We resent what we do not understand and accept the easier stuff?


And do we want to understand? Not always, if it means we might have been wrong. Admit it. We all do this.

However, quite often, those who put up warning signs are among those who know what’s coming and only hope, for a fleeting moment, to awaken us to dreadful possibilities, to protect us from our own mistakes, should we continue.

How kind!

How needed!

But — the pavement actually DOES end in a disastrously slippery way!

How I want to be like that!

  1. The image of a sign engendering wrath made me laugh a little. Not because I think wrath is funny in itself. I do find wrath turned against inanimate objects amusing, though. People kicking vending machines, swearing at copiers, etc. make me giggle. Filling a sign with buckshot is now entered as an image in my mental file labeled “funny pictures of impotent rage”. That said, yes, wouldn’t it be nice to be as helpful as a warning sign–or the creator of one. Agreed.

  2. Thanks for the comments, CM! I just think it’s extra funny that the sign requiring literacy is the one misunderstood and attacked. Sighs.
    Odd, the newspaper did not run the story that way! 😀

    Hmm. I just realized I am wishing to be shot at. Hmm. 😐

Comment! Because we want to know what you think!
