Follow the path...

This is a shot I've had for quite a while but never really looked at it until yesterday. I went with black and white for this because I felt that the color version just didn't have any "life." The frame is very busy and the things that stood out to me the most were the tree and the winding path. Processing this in black and white while adjusting the contrast and other settings, I feel, really brought out a special mood to the shot and accentuated these objects. When I look at it I initially get a feeling of over-stimulation due to how much is going on in the frame, but then this is calmed by the eye being drawn to the tree and to the path. That was my inspiration for the title...just keep your eye on the path and continue moving, you'll get to where you're headed eventually despite the distractions.
