SPC - 'Flashback 2013' - #2


This was taken mere seconds before I walked out of this building as an employee for the final time.

In October, the company who had employed me for over 17 years informed me that the department for which I had worked that entire time would be outsourced to a company in Nashville, Tennessee effective January 1, 2014.

The months of October, November and December were spent alongside my long-time colleagues and friends assisting in the transition to the new company.

This day, I was the last one out of the building of only a very few who came in on a day that was officially a holiday.

I gathered the last few personal items from my area, put my key on my boss's desk, turned out the lights, locked the door and walked through the dark and cold of the lonely parking lot to the only car remaining in the lot.

Darn near poetic.

I am not quite sure what's next for me. I know I'll be OK, but I don't adjust well to change. I tend to be content and loyal. Risk-averse, some would say.

Still, there is a part of me that is looking forward to the adventure of something new.

I'll just feel better when I know what that "something new" is going to be.

Themes: Widescreen tiny words White Space (compare to this shot).

I love this shot. I love what it captures. I love your words. I love the ends of chapters that leave me excited about what the next chapter will bring. I love you!
