Millennium Bridge Woods, #01

Yesterday I wanted to take my newly acquired Praktica MTL3 out to shoot some film, and so I set off down the road to the Millennium Bridge. This is a path I take very often, but this time it was different. As I approached the woods, I looked to the right, and spotted a trail I’d never noticed before. I’ve been here more times than I could count, but I’d been so focused on walking through the woods that I failed to notice this obvious path leading off in a different direction. My intentions in coming here all the other times had given me tunnel vision. So often when we’re out we’re so focused on what we’re doing that we fail to notice our environment. Only when you resign yourself to wander freely, without intention, can you truly find new places.
