View of Virginia water lake upon entering

The photo shows two paths leading to different parts of the Virginia water lake in Surrey ,UK. Where the left one leads you to a waterfall and right side leads you to another pond and further to different places. The picture posses a deeper meaning which is that life always will be a two way path. The path where the crowd always goes and the path which is often not chosen because of fear of non-confirmity or being different. It shows that being unique might actually lead to reaching your goals or success faster depicted by reaching the waterfalls and whereas the path which everyone takes might take you a long time to reach success where you only come across a pond first and then you will have to walk some more to reach the canopy of flowers and then the garden which is success. This shows not to be afraid of taking risks because you never know what it beholds or what's in store for you because you were true to yourself.
