This week Tina has chosen “path” as our prompt for the challenge.
I have several paths that I take on a regular basis. One, of course, is to work and back. I live about two miles from work but despite that short commute, I no longer seem able to get there by 8 each morning.
My other regular paths are longer – a 1 1/2 hour trip to Charleston each month for a doctor’s appointment and to visit family, a 2 hour trip to Summerville each month to visit family and a 4 hour trip each month to North Augusta to visit more family.
The trips can be quite monotonous even with my Ipod shuffling through my playlist but since I’ve taken up photography, everything – and I mean everything – that I see from my window seems so much more interesting than it did before. I keep my camera next to me and will stop at a moment’s notice to take a photo of something that caught my attention. It could be a church, an abandoned building or just the way the sun comes through the trees.
I’ve driven this road for many years and always thought the incline and curve of this stretch of road was interesting and graceful. And with this beautiful sky on this trip, I decided to turn off of it onto the frontage road for a better look.
I wonder who is Bobby and Jamie and why are their names written on the support beams on a stretch of highway out in the middle of no where. Or is it possible that Bobby and Jamie also had a love for angles and curves like me? Do their parents know where they’ve been? Do they have a curfew? Am I being silly or crazy and putting too much thought into this?
And why is this frontage road even here when there is nothing at the end of the road? It did give me something to think about for the last hour of the trip though.
