Q: how do I search for my name?

A: Do you know?

This photo is the product of a fisheye lens, and a wide-angle attachment being used rather experimentally.

I decided to try something a bit different while out wandering a HUGE forest yesterday. The two roads remind me of the famous poem by Robert Frost...

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim,

Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--

I took the one less traveled by,

And that has made all the difference..."

(-Robert Frost)

    This is an interesting effect. I prefer any artistic representation of life. This is just that. Wonderful, moody, the only thing different I would have done, is not included the modern road lines, but then again maybe that could represent the journey from one place to a new dimension.

    Gary, I was about to clone out the road lines, when I realized they flowed with the road and the curves of it, so I decided to leave them in. :)
    Hope everyone is having a great weekend, and Thank You!

    i always thought that poem was sad--that despite which road the old man took he was going to regret his decision. but despite all that, this is an outstanding picture. good experiment.
