There’s a lot to be said for “wandering”, whether it’s ambling down a path, as I was here, or “wandering” through a book, a museum, or the deepest imaginings of your mind.
I have found that while “wandering”, I arrive at creative solutions to problems that I wasn’t even trying to solve. Vague memories have solidified and worries dissolved.
It’s amazing what you can find when you’re not looking, and just wandering.

Ooh, I want to walk that path! Excellent textures and tones Ed. I guess Black and White is still in eh?
Thanks Rodney. I think some scenes just look better in black and white. Ed.
Beautiful Shot Ed! There are so many tones in there – very subtle! And the path is so inviting – you feel like yo can just step into the photo and walk down it!
Thanks Elisabeth, it was a very inviting scene. Ed
Definitely makes me want to ‘wander’ more! Beautiful capture, Ed, superb black and white!
Thanks Howard, glad you liked it. Ed
Ed, based on many of your past posts, pathway photos appear to be one of your themes. You might consider a coffee table book of your pathway images. As a minimum, 2 guys might offer it as a theme for posts form your readers. On second thought, maybe not. You would win hands down.
That’s very kind Prentis, thanks. Not a bad idea for a theme though. Ed
J.R.R. Tolkien would be pleased. To me, pathways are an iconic symbol of moving forward. You never know what is around the bend. Your photography resonates with our deepest longings. Love stopping by…
“Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.”
Thanks Rebecca, love having you stop by. When I chose that quote, I thought I might get a rise from you, as I know you’re a fan of JRR’s. Ed
🙂 🙂 🙂
Enjoyed my time here (just discovered your blog)! This post in particular is very poetic and the photograph suits perfectly the text! I agree with you, wandering makes you arrive at creative solutions. looking forward to your next post!
Thanks Virginia — welcome! Ed
