Get Off the Trail

Insist on yourself. Never imitate.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

The best things in life may not necessarily be what are directly ahead of you. Sometimes you have to get off the trail, the road that you are accustomed to;  drive down it and see what it shows you and where it leads.

It's not been until recently, that I have begun to understand my purpose and desire to create images. This is truly one of my many dimensions. It has been true all of my life; it wasn't until I was forced off the road that I realized it.

One of my readers, Dave Lasko, has known me since I first picked up a camera in high school. He viewed my first images with quite some interest and observed my composition. He was an artist and he noticed that I framed things with relative ease. To him its no surprise that I have fallen back to enjoying photography.

It's okay to leave your comfort zone. Explore what Life has to offer. You may be very surprised about the happiness that's within your reach. Just drive off the trail for a bit and see what happens.

  1. Well said Al! I agree that we need to find a path, even if it isn't a path. It is all about the journey and there is no journey if all you do is create a rut in the path you are on.

    Love the image as well.
