Whenever I walk and there is a path or a walkway I have to shoot it. It serves no other purpose than to ground my photos that day. It makes me think of prospective and where I should be pointing the camera. What line will the eye take when someone looks at it? Once I have that all figured out then I can shoot in peace. All the other photos for the rest of the day will be how I want them. If I can not get this simple photo right then nothing will work out, besides I wonder where all of these paths go.

This is Deer Grove East, which is in much better condition that the west side. I love the trees as they line the walk, I would rather the walk not be there as I prefer the walk to be natural but is is and I took this shot trying to capture the summer smell of the trees. The heat that radiates from them makes my skin itchy but I like it because it make me feel alive. At the very end of the road there is one tree with white blossoms on it. I thought it would make a great ending to the trail shot. It looked good in person but the effect failed on film or memory card. Still I can feel summer as I did as a child. I used to play in the forests around my home. I was never a runner but a good walker. I preferred my bike to walking and still do but I need to walk more and since I sold my jeep there is not much chance of carting bikes around. I bought the jeep to travel around but never did. When I lived in Mass it was great to use on 495 during the winter, but I only took it to the Cape on weekends and the idea of loading it up and moving on just never occurred except when I moved back to the Midwest. I know my photography would get better if I would bring my tripod to take some of these shots. Also this was taken with my Panasonic DMC-FX07. I own several high end cameras but take this one along just in case. It would still improve if I would use a tripod. Well now that I have said that I will put it in the car.
