THE PATH #writephoto – Marilyn Armstrong

As long as I can remember, I’ve been enchanted by paths and in particular, by paths in the woods. There’s something about them, a kind of magic. You can’t see where the path ends and any time you choose to walk on one, you could wind up anywhere from the parking lot of the local mall to an ancient churchyard.

It’s the not-knowingness that makes it special.

So every time we are taking pictures in or near the woods, I look for paths. Even tiny, obscure, overgrown paths nonetheless hold the possibility of adventure.

Mystery. A hidden future. The unknown calls out and we are obliged to follow.

  1. Such beauty and what a luring call they have – I’m the same only now I NEED to look down on my way ahead as my eyesight is so lousy…. I also take photos of far too many of my paths….. they all tell stories and suggest invitations, riddles, calls! Glorious photos .

  2. I love the Vermont Path and the path in the final picture. It has kind of a “Third Man” feel. I’ll grab the zither.
