Pathways

I’m on the move this morning, off to visit my favourite 5-year-old and her little sister so I don’t have time to write anything properly. Instead I’m going to do something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I really love taking photographs of paths leading off into the distance. I’m not sure why. I think it’s because of the potential for adventure, the invitation to explore an unknown world. I’ve taken tons of them so I thought I’d share a few.

  1. Nice pictures, Laura! NYC got some snow last night, so the green looks even more beautiful and inviting. Have fun today! 🙂

    Paths are a call to adventure. I love them too and will often go down them… sometimes to trouble.

    • Me too! I was once lost for about two hours on Wimbledon Common after seeing an exciting looking path off the pavement and into the thick bushes. That was not my finest hour!

  3. Speaking purely as a horror writer: all those places would be such great settings for a horror scene! wow!
