When I Walk
Over the past couple of weeks, or probably months as I have seemingly lost track of time now, I have taken to the humbled activity of walking. Partially as it is a great way to exercise relatively calmly, secondly to try to ease some of the boredom that peers into my life every so often and lastly to subdue my insatiable appetite for “doing things”. I have always been fascinated with the world and by that, yes I mean THE WORLD, as in every part of it; the vast concrete mega-structures such as New York make my brain melt into a philosophical goo just as easily as the erosion of a pebble. So where am I going with this? While walking I always take photographs along the way (yet another passion of mine) and I catch some pretty interesting things – however I never seem to catch the moments which I talk about the most, so I figured that it would be best to write them down and so forth comes the creation of this article.
About two days ago now I set out to go and photograph the bay where I live while the sun was shining – something which happens not too often in this country it seems. Unbeknown to me at the time, my original 30 minute stroll would soon turn into a 5 hour trek which would rival the Lord of The Rings saga itself.
