The Road Where I Live

As part of the Photography 101 class I am sharing pictures of the area in Northwest Florida that I call home which is part of my neighborhood.  This country road is where I meditate, dream up new poetry, or even think of  new stories to write.  If you walk the entire length and back it is about 4 miles.  I usually only walk two miles a day.

I like the way the shadows fall across the road in this photo.

Red Sumac

This is a dirt road which turns off of my walking road.  The only fall-color I could find in the area is this one lone red bush of sumac.

I caught a refracting sunbeam in the corner of this photo.  The road continues on past the swamps (on each side of the road) that I frequently write about.

I like the starkness of the swamp in this photo.  I managed to get some tiny wild daisies in the foreground which seem to frame the image.  We have not had much rain so this swamp is empty.

Thanks for sharing my walk with me today.  It was a lovely morning here in Pensacola, Florida – cool around 48 degrees.  Perfect!

    1. In the summer the swamps are full of snakes and huge spiders frame the trees. I suspect there are some wonderful plants like poison ivy in there too. It is a lovely spot and I get tons of inspiration from the beauty of the area. Thanks for liking my walk 🙂

  1. Lovely pictures and description on each. Beyond that, you have given me an idea on what to do with my street pictures. I was wondering if I could post more than one. Thank you 🙂


  2. Another great post. I love to see pictures of where you live, as it’s so vastly different to where I live. You’ve inspired me as well to do some more posts on the area where I live.
    I hope you don’t lose your walk. If you do are there others to go on? X
