True Tales of the Silver Fox
I have a walk I take most days. I sometimes wonder when I will tire of it and want to see something else. I haven’t yet. If anything, I find new parts to love, a different light to capture, some previously undiscovered thing, a deeper appreciation. 
The weather only needs to be passable to head out. I don’t worry about workout gear, only that I have a camera, and walking shoes. The walk takes about two hours, but I never time myself or count my steps.
I feel such a thrill as I approach the river. The sound of the rushing water calms me. I inhale deep breaths, and look for good shots. 
They aren’t hard to find. This previously industrial area has been turned into public walking spaces creating a tapestry of industrial relics set against a wide portion of the James River. Trains still barrel through. In the summer people swim by the shore. 
Never a dull moment.
The walk itself feels like a meditative practice. Each time I cover the same ground in a new way.
Below are a series of my best photographs.
