THE STORY OF "THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED"
“I don’t know where I’m going, but I’m on my way” is an oft-cited idiom for our love of taking the scenic route in life. In my case, the road that led me to where I am today, a fine art nature photographer, was by no means a straight shot, and neither was what I do now the destination of the path I initially set out on. What led me here, instead, was an unfailing willingness to follow my passion, to pursue my desire to be close to nature’s heart, and to not pay too much attention about “road conditions” along the way.
It probably comes as little surprise, then, that Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” is somewhat of a scriptural roadmap to how I look out on life. I’ve even had his famous poem hang in my bedroom for the longest time, an every-morning-ritual of reminding me to look left and right first where others may choose to walk in a straight line. My path has certainly not been the most conventional, and I know I am not alone with that. I have always looked for my own way of doing things — whether someone considers my way old or new by their standard will be secondary at best to my own decisions, for they are mine to make. I am proud of the winding road I have taken that led me to where I am today.
This image, “THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED” is a tribute to all those who are willing to take the risk to get off the main highway and explore their own path. I cannot wait to find out what’s around the next corner. Maybe I’ll see you there.
