If you find it on the road, shoot it. Route Artifacts Revisited.

with 6 comments

Last year I wrote a post about one of my favorite photographic subject: Route Artifacts. These are interesting things that I find on the road or path while riding my bike. My goal is to shoot the subject and leave it as I found it, keeping the picture as my only souvenir. I usually avoid shooting ordinary objects, trash or dead things, but sometimes those objects might tell an interesting story as well.

I started a photo set on Flickr over a year a go with just a few pics and now I have over 60. If you have a moment, you should go check them out. I’ve also started a Flickr Group so that others can share their own Route Artifacts – you are welcome to contribute. Here are just a few of my favorites:
