Weekly Photo Challenge: Future

Kennedy & Denison intersection, Markham. May 2006

Kennedy & Denison intersection, Markham (construction of Casa Del Sol condo). May 2006

I’m looking at this photo that I took from the past, which is kind of like me looking from the future into this very moment.  This photo was taken all the way back in 2006 in May when the flowers were springing up and the trees were blossoming with leaves.  That’s actually almost exactly ten years ago; a decade!  This photo shows an empty construction lot that was in the process of being transformed (they were building a condo that would be the future Casa Del Sol).  Back then, in this area of Markham, modern single detached homes were already springing up and more and more people were moving into the city.  Now, what is in place of this photo is the completed condo complex where there are many families living.  It’s interesting to look back from the future into the past to see what has occurred and how things have grown.

So many things can happen in the future that we don’t know about and it’s only when we take those photos to reminisce that we value the passage of time.  The future is a little scary to think about when you don’t know what is going to happen.  However, that is also one of the most exciting parts about life!  <End pontification> 😉
