The old road stretches out before me like a lonely friend who has been too long without company. It seems to ask if I’d forgotten about all the places we used to go together. My old friend has been there on nights when I just needed to wander through and seen my home again. It’s shown me small miracles that stray from the cover of the forest and lay almost motionless in the tall grass with only the flick of a sensitive ear to give it’s hiding place away. It was the old road that turned myth into fact the day it showed me that the panthers still stalk the mountains. We sat together for several minutes. I with the passenger side window open just enough to see the eyes and long tail in the high grass. The driver and the old road were my only witnesses. The old roads know well my destination and talk to me in the sounds made by wheels in rain, slush and snow to let me know how fast or slow to go but on ice the road speaks very little and I have an abundance of caution if the road is silent. On mornings of travel the old roads always greet me with a smile in the rising sun. The same road bids me to rest well as I’m delivered home once more. And today, the road asks for one more adventure. One more day with no particular time to be anywhere. Just let the road pick the right place to be for a while. There’s life in the hills and the road knows where to find it.
Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.
I am adding additional social media to my network. Eventually, I’ll be leaving Facebook behind for a multitude of reasons. Even though the Lloyd’s Lens Photography page is strictly non-political I have been restricted from interacting with followers with no explanation for why. But it’s not just that. For years now Facebook has throttled content providers in general. They encourage us to grow our audience and then want to sell us back the access to them. In addition, they collect and sell the data from our interaction. So Facebook has become an entanglement of thorns. In response I have created the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe. We can still interact directly on the blog but starting today I’ll be looking for more platforms that respect the privacy of my followers and don’t limit who gets to see the post.
I want you to join my group on MeWe: https://mewe.com/join/lloydslensphotographydiscussiongroup
Hey Friends! Just a quick reminder that Lloyds Lens Photography is available for portraits!
