“Familiar Paths”

“Familiar Paths”

“Familiar paths beckon us forward. Though familiar, there is always something new or changed, if we take the time to notice.” – Ed Lehming

I find myself on the same trails many times. Often I wonder what more they can offer me as I set out. Every time, there is something new. It may be that I have come at a different time of day and the light has changed. It may be a different time of year and new plants spring up that did not exist, or went unnoticed, last time I passed by.

What I have discovered in this familiarity is that even subtle changes are quickly noticeable.

I’ve had people bemoan the fact that they live in an area that does not have much subject matter to make beautiful photos, when in fact, it’s simply that they aren’t looking closely enough. Even the most barren of places has something to offer.

In the case of this image, I have made many photos of it, in various seasons and weather conditions. Like this example from less than a year ago.
