I haven’t gone for a run for about a month now. There’s nothing wrong with me physically; I haven’t had the motivation or desire. Sunday, though, I found some motivation and had time, but instead of running I decided to just walk. And also I left my phone at home and took my camera. I’ve run this same route around the neighborhood many times so everything is familiar to me and I wondered if I would find anything of interest to photograph. My initial thought was that I wouldn’t take any pictures but surprisingly, I did see a few things that I wanted to preserve to pixels. Here are three of the photos I made:
There’s a neighborhood pond and fountain that some people fish at but because of the drought, it has been pretty low. Still, there was enough water to support all the plant life there.
The most interesting part of this route is a path that runs through a wooded area. The late-afternoon light filtering through the leaves was pretty nice.
My first walk while taking the camera was a positive experience. I guess it was kind of an experiment too… would I be able to convert this exercise-focused running route into a photo-walk route? The answer is yes! It’s exciting because it kind of opens up more possibilities for photo-walks. And I also benefit with a bit of exercise, fresh air, and sunshine!
