the Singapore project | the Road Not Taken

November 18, 2013  •  5 Comments

For some reason as I stare at this photograph taken just off the beaten path of Singapore's Marina Bay, I am reminded of Robert Frost's poem, the Road Not Taken. singapore family photographerthe Singapore project, photography of Singapore Marina BayThe Road Not Taken. The view from down below at Singapore's Marina Bay

 

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

This needs to be blown up in a big print on a wall. Beautiful night image!
