Comfort And Creativity In The Familiar

There’s comfort in the familiar and there’s creativity to be found in photographing the same places. I have been testing this theory lately by walking the same bike path a few times a week.

It’s interesting to see how the look of a place changes with the time of day, changing light and the presence of wildlife. The Canada Geese were happily soaking up late afternoon sunlight one day last week.

Then there was this message in the snow.

This bench is a particular favorite of mine. It’s so close to the road I have never seen anyone sit there but it does look welcoming in photos.

It helps being able to view your ordinary surroundings with fresh eyes. It keeps life interesting!
