The roads I travel (theme)

by Helen Hooker November. 30, 2011 4984 views

Rather than shoot real roads for today??s theme I decide to take a more abstract approach and use my Lensbaby to shoot a map of the area I live in. I decided to focus on my home town of Chichester (although we actually live in Fishbourne, just west of Chichester) and then edited it to give the image an aged look.

Actually I think it reminds me a a new map. I remember getting lost driving to Scotland from England well my husband was driving I was supposed to be navigating. So my fault of course and we ended up in a town called MOIRA . Can you believe that!!!! . I've tried to find it on maps again but I haven't managed.

Nice idea and I'm with Ann; I'm fascinated by place names and some of those I especially love are down in Dorset - the home of all the Piddles and Puddles :-)

I find place names fascinating, and have spent many a long and boring journey pouring over the road atlas in the car discovering all manner of wierd and wonderful places... there is an English musician called Tom Bliss who has made an excellent poem using only English and Welsh place names (and prepositions), called 'Middle English and Welsh pie' it is well worth a listen... http://youtu.be/6tltEZzTxxs
