Bored Walking

I actually took a 2 mile walk stroll around a nearby lake yesterday. I had trouble going down the small hills along the path, but no trouble walking up them. That is progress certainly?
 

At my age when I walk with a limp from the injury, I age 10 years or more to those that see me.  But with healing comes an ability to stifle the limp and to stand up straighter and I think I look like a different person.   Thus, I took some before and after photos of my walk to show how we see things differently with subtle changes.  I took a photo of one of my favorite places on this lake...the beaver dam with a resting bench that one reaches by going half way around.  The first photo is what the camera saw.  The second photo is what I did in post processing to reveal what my eyes saw.  (I even removed that tiny sign on the tree...!)

What a lovely place. I am glad that you are out and about more again, what a difference it makes to be able to take in the sights and sounds of Nature.

Fabulous. Wish I could have been there. More power to you. Get back those years!

I want to know what the small sign on the tree said.

Happy you are able to enjoy nature close up again.

The small sign had a number 26 on it. There may have been numbers on the other shelters or docks around the lake...but I missed them and there were certainly less then 10 stations...so I have no idea what the number meant!

Just lovely. Contrast, drama, a little light here and there. Just lovely. Ankle too. :)

I have DREAMED of having a place like this in the back somewhere of my future home.

Sadly, I live a big city now, so that probably will not be possible.

I'll just print out this picture, blow it up, and post it in my window :)

Excellent photos, and not just technically: they have lots of mood. Looks like a fun paddle and great fall days.
