Come along! #1

Cedar (not mahogany!) boardwalk at the canoe park.

This is the first installment in a week-long series, where you can join me on a daily walk through my community. Comfortable shoes - mandatory! Floppy sun hat - optional ;-)

Whenever life throws me a curve, I don't waste the opportunity to learn from it. I step back and ask myself "Am I on the right track?"
This theme song from the movie "Mahogany", sung by Diana Ross, gets to the point, by simply asking:

"Do you know where you're going to?
Do you like the things that life is showing you?
Where are you going to?
Do you know?
Do you get what you're hoping for?
When you look behind you there's no open door
What are you hoping for?
Do you know?..."

Oh, Alice, I would like to take one or two curves to our summer place, if you don`t mind.Diana Ross is singing here too, thank you!

Dsole said...

Nice song and great photo, Isabella!

I love one quote from an Aerosmith song (called Amazing) that says... "Life is a journey not a destination"
And of course during that way you'll find lots of curves, traffic-lights, and gas stations where you can recharge batteries! ;)

la photo est superbe (on a l'impression de pouvoir disparaitre en suivant ce chemin) et va tres bien avec cette tres belle chanson.
Tres beau post, bravo (tu as reussi a contourner le probleme pour mettre de la musique, tres bonne l'idee de Youtube)

the photograph is superb (there is the impression to be able disparaitre while following this way) and goes very well with this very beautiful song. Very beautiful post, cheer (you succeeded has to circumvent the problem to put music, very good the idea of Youtube)

I like that boardwalk very much and appreciate it's ecologically correct...
You're very philosophical today..

Nice composition Isabella, but you shouldn't provoke the media like this! I can just see it. "Viacom sues Naplesdailyphoto for 2 billion dollars". Naplesdailyphoto says "Come and get me - we've got the alligators here"

Kate said...

Your philosophical outlook is just what I need! I love the composition and the "feel" of the wood as I walk along.

Monica said...

Totally agrre with Dsole, with a path so beautiful as this, who cares which way it is leading?!

Chris & Deb said...

life indeed does offer many twists and turns....but keep those feet on the boardwalk and you'll make it....
or is it 'keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars..."? Nope that's Casey Kasem.

...and you still claim to have only a point and shoot camera?

Nice colours & tones in the shot...well captured & composed!

Lessie said...

Great photo. I want to follow the path and see what's around the corner.

Chuckeroon said...

That's the last time I pay you compliment and say what nice photos you get with that camera! You obviously live a very sheltered life. ;-)

Frank said...

Nice shot! I like the idea that the path seems to go forever.
One could wander aimlessly and forget their troubles for a while.
Then they meet the alligator at the end.
Afterwards, their troubles don't quite seem so important.
Is that a win-win situation?

Goody!

Are you watching Idol? Diana Ross was a guest last night.

This is a great boardwalk. Do you know the wood? Looks like teak, but that would be pricey.

Kala said...

snow white, pocahontas, cinderella and a beautiful song - I would love this walk on a beautiful path! =)

ruth said...

Heh, was that line about it being cedar there before I asked the question? :|
