A place for my photos and random thoughts

While on my walk….

Sometimes when I arrive at our hotel I find a walk to be good medicine for relieving any stress. While on such a walk I found this lamp on the outside of the hotel as a simple yet interesting subject. How often do we walk by these simple objects and never see them?

  1. Monte, walking has always be my activity for thinking, working through a problem, or just relaxing — even before I started carrying a camera everwhere.

    I’m sure I miss many interesting subjects during my day out of routine, habits and simply not paying attention. However, if my wife’s walking with me I’m sure she’d tell you I must not miss anything because it seems I stop to look or take photos every two seconds while on a walk. 🙂

  2. Even driving. I was in stop and go traffic in an area that I usually pass through with ease and as I sat there I noticed things I hadn’t seen before and this is even more so if you are a pssenger for a change.

  3. @Earl: Walking was a God-send while going through a traumatic time in my life about 18 years ago. NOw I seem to surf more than walk. 🙂

    @Don: LOL Driving can be hazardous when seeing the simple things in life. I’d rather be the passenger bu then I’d have to ask the driver to top all the time.

  4. I can’t imagine what your life is like, schedule-wise. Do you end up in the same city and hotel over and over again or is there variety?

  5. @Chris: Plenty of variety. We get to bid for certain trips (pairings) each month, knowing our schedule for the coming month on the 20th. I have been bidding according to where I would like to overnight and hope I get some time to explore the area. It does not always work as some overnights are too short, arriving late and leaving early.
