Recently, I spent two weeks in Pittsford, NY, visiting family and helping with my grandchildren. I didn't have a lot of "me time", but was able to spend one incredibly gorgeous early July morning walking the Eric Canalway Trail that runs through this quaint New York town.

So true, at least for me! There is nothing quite like a long walk in solitude, Nikon and iPhone is hand, to fire up those creative brain cells. Here are a few unedited photos from my walk on the Erie Canal Trail...

Playing with photos is fun, however it's the not
the end of this story. My photos are all part of the prep for the next step...painting. I'm still not sure whether I'll use watercolors or acrylics, but either way, I'll be sharing my work in progress here on the blog and on Instagram.
Meanwhile, stay creative, my friends! Take a walk in the woods with your camera or smart phone, capture the beauty that surrounds you while you breathe in the fresh air and sunshine, and then share your photos on Instagram with #creativity_crusader.
