As in nature, all is ebb and tide, all is wave motion, so it seems that in all branches of industry, alternating currents – electric wave motion – will have the sway. Nikola Tesla

“Moreover, since the sun remains stationary, whatever appears as a motion of the sun is really due rather to the motion of the earth.” Nicolaus Copernicus

Look at what you want to change, gather a few people who believe in it like you do, and start moving forward. It’s important to remember that you don’t always need a destination. Sometimes, you just have to make forward motion. And you absolutely can. Debby Ryan

Weekly Photo Challenge: MOTION!

Yet it is in this loneliness that the deepest activities begin. It is here that you discover act without motion, labor that is profound repose, vision in obscurity, and, beyond all desire, a fulfillment whose limits extend to infinity. Thomas Merton

My fellow bloggers were equally creative with their selections. Check out how others interpreted the theme below.

This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: Weekly Photo Challenge: MOTION For This week, share your photographs that have captured motion, and tell us the stories behind the images. Capturing motion is a beautiful way to convey a story in a photograph, sometimes even more so than a photo of the same subject in a stationary pose. Some situations lend themselves to “action” photography; sports, dance, the wind gusting through trees on a stormy evening, but anything that can move is a candidate for these types of shots.

Positive Motivation Tip: Life is all about motion. Keep stepping forward and spread the joy!

    Yup, it’s all about keeping things moving for us. We don’t know how to slow down here in Boston, though.

    What fun photos. I feel like I could title many of my kids’ photos as “motion” because they are always on the move.

    I love the photos that you shared. It is cool how a camera can capture motion usually it looks like a blur. My kids are excellent at being in motion when I want them to be still. 🙂

    Sir Issac Newton obviously never observed a cat in motion!! Straight line–never happen!! I do love all these photos and they do convey what you wanted them to convey.

    WOW! these are some great photo’s, I think if we all interpret one another, we can only get our own point a view . It is nice when we can see beyond what is there..

    I absolutely agree that sometimes you don’t need a destination…it’s just about forward momentum! I equate forward movement with growth…physical, emotional, spiritual.

    Taking steps forward is the best way to go. Can’t get anywhere at all if you’re not at least moving.

    This is such an interesting photo challenge! These pictures are really awesome. My husband loves to take photos in motion, but I think it does not look perfect all the time. Love the share.

    I would say you have a great collection of photos to describe motion. We as people seem to always be in motion.

    Capturing motion has always been tricky for me. These are great pics!

    What is the opposite of motion? stagnation, that’s impossible isn’t it? Love the quotes and I’m intrigued, where was the photo of the big hall with three curved windows taken?

    • 27/04/2015 5:18 am

      The big hall is Grand Central Station, NY. It is always filled with people milling around and felt it would be ideal. Perhaps I should have added one with an image of a person flashing by… 😉
