Monday Blues: Separation...

... Anxiety? Photographs can be great for storytelling. Sometimes that story is a real event. Other times it can be an imaginary one. The latter was the case here. As I walked along at the recent Summer End Grand Prix, I saw this image and immediately thought "Monday Blues". Later, I thought there might be a little more to it - the racer, relaxing in the shade, mentally preparing for his upcoming race. Meanwhile, his steed anxiously awaits at the curbside. There is a tension between the two, the contrasting repose of each. To me the one seems calm and subdued; the other tense, electrical, awaiting the jump to speed, the spring into action.

Blue: A color, a mood or emotion, a genre of music. Tune in each Monday for another installment of the Blues, with a cycling twist.
