Solemn Moment

Alarmed by the scene

Solemn moment unfolding

Consequences feared

Angel of darkness hovers

Fateful meeting of many


Since I was late in posting for Colleen’s challenge and Halloween has ended,  I decided to reflect on a scary event in life when one have no control over the fateful moment. This photo was taken off my balcony a few months ago. Just to let you know that the pedestrian that was hit by a vehicle ended up with minor injuries.

About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

      Thank-you, Vashti. Now I know, in a small way, what photo-journalists go through. Photographing a horrible scene is very emotional. I’m glad she was okay also.

    It’s a relief the person turned out okay. It must have been a few anxious moments for everyone around.
