There are some pictures that ask no question nor deliver no message. The simply are. Others may be interesting to view, pleasing to the eye or rustle the cinders of imagination. This picture does the latter for me. It was taken in a reserve sanctuary area in Florida where birds and other wildlife can roam/fly free and be their natural selves. The price they pay for this privilege is allowing walkways like this one to be built so we humans can stroll through their homeland and take pictures to put on our blogs.
I did not have the right lens with me (wow, I sound like some know-it-all photographer) so I couldn’t get this shot. But my friend, Ken Berk, was able to get it with his phone…so much for my fancy equipment.
Getting back to my premise, this is the kind of picture that stirs the imagination and sort of begs the question: “Where do you see the pathway leading to?” Here are some of my initial thoughts. Feel free to add to the list….
…to the great beyond…that big woodsy place in the sky.
…to a dark forest with creepy creatures.
…since it turns hard right, to conservative politicians, some of whom would prefer a corporate HQ in this spot.
…is this the path that Robert Frost took…or is it the other one?
…McDonalds and, preferably, a mocha frappe.
… the right lens I needed to take this picture.
…a bench where I can sit while I ponder where this path leads to.
…and so on.
