“Not all who wander are lost”

wander, path, lost, looking, black and white, B&W, Sony NEX 6

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.

Quote by J. R. R. Tolkien.

    Ooh, I want to walk that path! Excellent textures and tones Ed. I guess Black and White is still in eh?

  2. 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!

    Definitely makes me want to ‘wander’ more! Beautiful capture, Ed, superb black and white!

    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.

    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.”
