The Path.............

"When you step into the unknown, you are on the right path--the road less traveled.  Enjoy every moment of the journey."
~  Joey Green

Photographers and viewers of photography have long been drawn to scenes depicting paths or roads leading to an unknown destination. I think that same quality of mystery is why many people also love images of doors and windows. What's on the other side?

I have been out hiking quite a bit these last few weeks (I do feel a little guilty given the weather conditions in other parts of the country........). There were a couple of outings where I left the Nikon at home with the intention of simply enjoying the walk, but  I did have my iPhone....

While I tried to keep the shooting to a minimum, I started noticing paths everywhere, which of course I photographed.

It didn't dawn on me until halfway through writing this post how much the quote above relates to my word for the year - "trust".  However, I don't think "enjoying the journey" entered into that discussion. I realize now how important that is.

I do need to trust, which means I have to keep walking even though I don't know where the path leads. 

I love the work I am doing right now. I am having a blast, but I don't know where it's going to end up. Much of it may live on my hard drive forever, but that's ok. It doesn't matter. I am learning, discovering and "enjoying the journey"...........

All of these images were made and processed with the iPhone. I used the "Mextures" app on most of them, with fine tuning in "Snapseed".

Have a great weekend everyone!
