Route Artifacts

with 2 comments

I love making wrong turns.

I’m usually the guy that has a great sense of direction and knows exactly where I want to go. Occasionally, I am known to make mistakes (my wife would say more often than not), and find myself making new discoveries on my rides.

On one of my off-the-beaten path excursions, I happened to notice a little object sitting on the road. On closer observation, I realized it was a little toy – an action figure that resembled some sort of pro wrestler. I don’t know why this peaked my interest, but I went ahead and shot a picture of it.

Perhaps it was the little mystery of where it came from or maybe I was just interested in the fact that it was a random discovery, made possible by a previous mistake in direction. Either way, I’ve now captured it by photo.

I am now more aware of things that show up on my routes and shoot pics of them if they interest me. I’ve even started a flickr pool to share them with others. Hopefully, other folks can share their discoveries.
