They're all beautiful Grizz.  The last two are very emotional - lonely for sure.  The flowers along the road keep it from being too sad or desolate, but that's exactly what I get from the last one.

One of my favorite places to run:

Grizz - I do like the last shot of yours - a nice sense of isolation.

Beautiful!

 

And isolation was the word I was looking for.  Thank you!

I have lots of trail type photos, but I will charge my camera battery and take new photos for this assignment.

Here are three recent ones, not for the assignment but for the topic.  All 3 are B&W.

 

P1090135b.jpg

 

This was one of two very very long stairs in France that gave me the willies.  The other was enclosed and well, I found out that I had a phobia I never knew I had.  I kept checking over my shoulder to see if Gollum was following us.  True.

 

 

 

P1090201b.jpg

 

Caranxa Gorge, or the beginnings of what is a several day hike.  Just before this was a tunnel that had signs defaced with Grafitti in several languages repeating the refrain "DANGER!!!"  We went anyway.  The path was 3 feet wide.  You can see the cleft on the right hand side that people over the centuries have carved from the rock.

 

 

 

P1090547.JPG

 

 

A street in Carcasonne, leading up from the Narbonne gate.  Notably free of people.  That was a hard thing to get!

Not sure what causes selective cropping.  Weird.

I remember those photos Grizz, except the trail one.   I think scary in different languages would have worked too!

 

Do you mean the upload is selective cropping?

 

Methinks I will start a new topic on how I prepare images for upload.
