My effort this week is taken from a mixture of my travels, but also my local area. I spend a lot of time walking and cycling and know the pathways very well.
But to start I have chosen a shot taken back in 1998 just outside Cox’s Bazaar in Bangladesh. It was an interesting day as I was taken through the paddy fields by a local lad I had met, a very helpful chap who took me off the beaten track and showed me some of the rural communities. At one point I was surrounded by school children and had to go into the school and teach an English lesson to get them back at their desks. This shot was taken just outside that village. You will have to excuse the quality, it was an extremely hot day and this was real film.
My second shot was taken in the Netherlands, my brother and I were working in the bulb fields in Hillegom, the shot was taken near Noordwijk Ann Zee. It was a great time in our lives, we had just left England to travel around Europe in a beaten up old Bedford van. I also have a great love for these dune paths.
A little closer to home, a couple of shots taken in Richmond Park, where I have wandered extensively over the last few years.
And living next to the River Thames I had to include these.
And from a recent trip to the Surrey Hills, and area I am starting to explore with my new hiking boots!
And finally from New Zealand. This was taken in a ancient Kauri forest near Whangerei.
My thank you to our hosts for the invite to this challenge.
