Roads, Roads – Road of unknown

Roads are the tempting subject for many of my photographs.  Why roads – unique perspective shaping. What is more important from my perspective they also give me a unique vision of continuous move.  Unlimited travel possibilities to go there. Where you’ve never been before.

I personally like the road which are leading up to  the hills. These give me a chill thrill of sudden surprise when I will reach the top of the hill. 

My homeland Poland gives me a lot of opportunities to take them.  There are plenty of the nice roads to take picture. You can't imagine how happy I am thanks to that fact.

I am always try to catch this glimpse of unknown. Where this road is leading, what is on the other side of the hill. Surroundings are also very important for me. Sky, clouds trees, buildings small chapels. 

Sometimes I am way off with the balance of my composition. Is that really so important for amateur photographer like me? Don’t get me wrong the composition is important and should be. Some times the pure look and feel. All that moment circumstances take all responsibility. They are mostly first to blame for lack of the composition rules on my roads pictures.

What is even more tempting. There are so many roads and lightning conditions still ahead of me. Like the road with the photography I choose not so long ago.

I love photographing roads. The idea that the subject will have no beginning or end in your frame is very fun for me. Great work!
