Wandering Eye

There are high roads, low roads and roads that rise up to meet you.  At least one road is paved with good intentions, and if the old adage is to be believed, it will lead one straight to perdition.  It was once said that "all roads lead to Rome"; that may or may not have been true, but what is true is that all roads lead somewhere, even if that "somewhere" is in "the middle of nowhere".  This time out the Wandering Eye settles on "the road"; and, why would it not?  The road is a very handy thing to anyone that wanders, whether it be to Rome or to the middle of nowhere.

Great collection of images! Thanks for including my 30mph Corner :)

Jay B. Wilson said...

Thanks, Photogrunt, for including me. Funny, I wasn't sure which of my photos you'd include until I got to it - guess I never realized how many "road" photos I have. Thanks!

A road less travelled has led me to many an adventure (and misadventure), to some incredibly beautiful places and to meeting lovely, interesting people. The thrill of the unknown at the end of a road can be intoxicating, though sometimes paralyzing, but so far has ended well (I'm still here!). Thanks for the "Wandering Eye" and the many less travelled roads! Dorothyann

Very nice collection that seems to belong together perfectly!

Kelly Warren said...

Beautiful! Thanks so much for including my "Nobody Home." This is such an awesome grouping but if I had to pick a favorite I'd say it's "Ditch Road" by rrobertsphoto. The use of light and dark in that shot is amazing.
