Showcase of Road and Path Photography: 50 Exquisite Shots

By . Filed in Inspiration

It’s hard to imagine that something we see and use on a daily basis can exude so much beauty in photography. I’m talking about the scenic paths we hike on and explore, the roads we take to get to work and to travel across and beyond the boundaries of the country. Given our daily exposure to roads and paths, I expected myself to take their existence for granted, not be dazzled by them. But when I stumbled across a few of them on the Net, I got a unique and up-lifting feeling instead.

I think roads are more than just a physical entity; they are symbolic to some extent. They symbolize our journeys towards a destination, much like the goals and dreams we work hard to achieve in our lives. I figure this was probably why I felt inspired by each of the 50 exquisite photography shots of roads and paths that follow.

As you scroll down each of them, observe the feeling each snapshot evokes in you. Notice how the different angle, backdrops, colors, etc used in the shots change your mood. It will be quite an interesting experience for you, I’m sure.
