35.5 – 100 Paces – a photographic Journey

6 am every morning I follow this route to work and being absolutely honest with you the journey now scares the living daylights out of me, seriously I’m not joking. I walk along darkened paths and across the Common well before dawn under a pitch black skyline and on my own!! Unbelievably spooky it is, no one about and I can imagine someone jumping out and robbing me. When you arrive at the Common just know a young woman was raped close to the bridges early one July 2016 morning. You can see why I’m a bag of nerves.

So I have walked from my Home following a well trodden route into Town for you, now hold on before you leave, I understand all my photographic posts feature my housing estate but never mind. I ‘snapped’ a photo every 100 paces following the 12 minute journey toward the final picture, the bus stop! Then I board a double decker bus towards Oxford. I hear you ask “so tell me why did you post this Andrew?”

Why not 🙂 , just picture this journey dead of night beneath only a handful of lamps, a weak post? The next will be better.

Follow the photos to follow my journey. Ok these look as if I don’t travel any farther than my neighbourhood but hey putting this together seemed like an interesting idea :/ perhaps I have tooo much time on my hands? I’ve work next week, I get tired so this’ll be the last. You should see what else languishes in my drafts!
