“Newness” or “Within Walking Distance”

Wwd_003webThis morning’s 8:30 a.m. photo session inspired me to create a new series. I’m titling it “Within Walking Distance.” And from that title, you can likely deduct that it will encompass anything “within walking distance.”

Within walking distance of what? you may ask… Well, I’ve been milling over the conditions and I’ve come up with this: within walking distance of any place I’ve lived. So, that covers 7158 Berne Rd. in Pigeon, Spring Arbor University’s campus, Grand River Canyon apartments in Colorado Springs, Alpine Lake apartments in Jackson and 1323 Park Rd. in Jackson. What distance defines “within walking distance?” Well…I have to walk there. So, if I have enough time, that could mean within several miles.

So, we’ll see where this goes. I plan to do some writing to accompany, as I did with my Creation series. It was great to get out and shoot this morning. I only ventured about 1/4 mile down the road. And I was pleasantly surprised with what I came up with. Of course, it’s good I was alone, because nobody I know of would have been able to stand working the same acre of land for about two hours. But that’s just how I operate :)

Posted is the third picture I took this morning. The rest of the series will have to wait for a high speed connection…unless I decide to post one from tomorrow and Saturday.
