Taken the other day around a local park. It seems that everything is blooming already. I just love pathways, portals, trails, bridges, and old barns. They are so expressive. They just speak to me of past generations, of others who came before and who left their footprints for us to follow.
It is how we best learn. Not by trying to reinvent the wheel but by standing on the shoulders of those who have gone before. Not by striking out on our own but by attending a class and learning as a group the time tested methods that work. After we have learned, we then go off and create new things to pass on to the next generation. It is the way of learning.
You can partake of this learning by using the signup form in the right sidebar of this blog. New classes are starting the week of May 7th.
I hope to see you in class.
Some times, when you are out working, things just come together for a good image.
We were out doing some autumn portraits for a class demonstration and came upon this shaft of sunlight falling right on the old plow. After setting up the camera for the “Plow Photo” this autumn colored feline walked out from behind the tree and stopped to take a good look at us. We, of course reciprocated. “That’s it kitty, a big smile” :-)
This walkway over what the locals call “Hawg Creek” is part of a bike path that runs along the river in Lima. It is nice to see the old rail road tracks being used for the betterment of the community. The “Rails to Trails” program is a big thing here in Xenia
and across the state.
You can now travel all over the state of Ohio by bicycle on these trails. A really cool concept.
Late afternoon light and a bit of imagination produced this image. Enjoy!
