A Good Walk

Few people know how to take a walk.  The qualifications are endurance, plain clothes, old shoes, an eye for nature, good humour, vast curiosity, good speech, good silence and nothing too much.  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Most mornings I go for a little wander around my town, generally a 2.5 – 3 mile circuit.  I do this to clear my head after a 2 hour reading period and to get ready for the events of the day.  Yes I am an early riser. In the U.S. Army we had a strap-line that said ‘we do more before 9AM than most people do all day.’  I guess you can take the man out of the army but you can’t take the army out of the man.

I pretty much do the same few circuits. The point of this walk is more about movement and thinking and less about seeing new things.  Saying that, I decided to take of a different of what I saw as I walked.  I used the old Hipstamatic app to capture small random details of my town:
