More Walks in the Woods (series)



Since it was a bright sunny day with a high near 50, I decided to take a walk in the woods. The naturalized daffodils sure think Spring is right around the corner even though the calendar says it is still  24 days away.


I seemed to find a lot of steps to nowhere in the woods today.


Everywhere is somewhere, but where these steps used to go is unknown to me.


Some of these stairs took a great deal of hand work to build. Shame they really go nowhere significant nowadays.


Sometimes the stairs took a great amount of forming followed by a bunch of pouring. Now they preform no purpose at all. There is nothing at the top and they took you from nothing of any trace.


Sometimes the stairs lead to something charming.


Cast iron holds up well to the elements. The plaster and lathe on wood framing does not hold up quite as well.


The cross seamed oddly stripped of its jewels. 


A seedy spirituality seemed to have creeped into this sanctuary. Maybe not, what do I know.


The marble had sure given up its shine, though.


And then there was the VW bus. It was where it just shouldn't have been. It was one of those "how did that get here" moments. 


It might have been left there by the Dharma Initiative. Nero might have donated it to the cause too.


It was like a fallen city in some parts of my walk.

Great pictures, Frank! I like this series. It's nice to take a walk in the woods from the warmth of my couch.

You already know I enjoy your posts. Thanks for the effort.

As I recall, the Lumex something-something-10 suffered Sudden-Camera-Death (SCD)long ago.

What model Brownie are you using now?

Tom, Thank you for the kind words. I am currently using a Cannon. It is a pocket camera and it is billed as shock proof, drop proof, and water proof. I am not as pleased with the options or photos it provides over the Lumex something something

Frank - Click his "read more" link; In the words of, I believe, John Cleese, "Spam spam spam spam..." He sucked me in.

It was great finally connecting with you yesterday. We're camped in Wytheville VA as I type to be home tomorrow.
