There are some places where I never tire of spending time. Lake Alma State Park falls into this category. My favorite feature here is is the nice bike path that stretches past the lake and into the nearby City of Wellston.
It’s reasonably peaceful most days and easily accessible for a quick walk after work.
I sometimes snap phone pictures here during my walks and the challenge is to find new ways to look at the familiar.
Like these boats.And the road.
Luckily, nature changes daily. The sky and the light are always different. Right now the trees are bare but starting to bud. In a couple of weeks they will look completely different.
Repetition may seem boring to others but I find it calming and even challenging at times. I like looking for new ways to see the familiar.
It’s a skill, I think, being able to look at something day in and day out but still see it from a fresh perspective. It’s a skill that can be applied to situations that require problem solving and to daily life just to prevent boredom.
Perhaps this is why I am never bored. There’s always something to see or learn about a subject – even when you think you’ve seen it all!
I can understand why you’d never get bored of a place like that – it looks lovely.
I agree there’s a useful skill in looking at familiar things in different ways – I commend you on being able to it.
It really is a beautiful place and just a few minutes from work so it’s easily accessible. People ride their bicycles, picnic, camp and fish here too. Are you good at stepping back and looking at the familiar with fresh perspective?
I try to be – I don’t like to keep ending up with the same photos when I visit places I’ve been to before.
