I have written before about Two Lake Trail in southern Indiana, a 13 mile loop.
Here we are at the end of summer, colors haven’t changed yet from uniform green&brown to the fall display of everything.
The safest way to deal with this is to ignore the colors. And, while we are at it, also to ignore sharpness and depth of field, as that might reveal how all this here really looks like.
If you remove color and use blurry images, it’s not so bad anymore.
Even the very smelly drainage from one of the two artificial lakes starts to look compelling.
And see, Indiana does have mountains.
What we see here is the esthetics of stuff. With open eyes, such pictures are possible everywhere.
All that really matters are contrasts. Is that what we really want?
Black/White, Vaccinated/Not Vaccinated, is that what we have become?
I had this trail all for myself. Except for the bugs and spiders, of course. Where are my fellow humans?
Maybe it’s time to open my eyes.
