A photowalk in September

You can almost always take a photowalk.

Photography has preserved my sanity these last few months.

Also, I’m learning that a photowalk can fix most things in life. You just grab your camera and you go out.

Maybe you go somewhere special. Or maybe you go wherever.

To see what you see.

You make yourself look at the world as it presents itself to you, right where you are. And right when you are.

On this photowalk, I saw a still river.

And I saw a man and his boat.

Sometimes, that’s all you need to see to get your sanity back.

And no, it doesn’t have to be complicated.

Sure, we can’t always choose when and where to go out. Most of the times, we must adapt.

Still, it’s almost always possible to take a few minutes break and just go outside.

And all you need to turn a walk into a photowalk is … your camera.

The photos were taken with a Canon 5D MkII using a 50mm 1,8 lens.
