Off track

I’ve been whining lately that I’m running out of places to go on my photo hikes. I’ve done beaches, I’ve done the local state parks, I’ve found out-of-the-way trails that aren’t on any maps. What could I do to mix things up? I was getting tired of taking the same photos over and over, changing only the season or time of day.

I felt I was getting stale and boring.

Then I turned left.

Driving through a small town that I’ve been through hundreds of times, instead of going straight through the lone stop light, I turned off my normal path. It was very serendipitous, and I will return to explore some more.

  1. What a fortuitous trip off track. What an amazing place — the gristmill and bridge are especially beautiful. Wonderful shots!
