Driving around town at 50 mph, you have a tendency of noticing only the car in front of you. Seldom do you have the time to peek through the trees to see what’s hiding. That’s one reason why I like photo walks.
Photo walks allow you to take your time and see things you didn’t know were there or from a new or unique point of view . I recently went downtown to shoot some fountains and discovered the Richard and Annette Bloch Cancer Survivors Plaza. It’s a nice plaza, nestled in some trees right alongside Fannin Street.
Looking it up on the net, I discovered these can be found in many cities. Each contain 7 plaques that talk of the Road to Recovery, offering common sense suggestions on fighting cancer. You can find more about them here. It’s a nice place to sit quietly, pray or reflect on things important to you. There’s a nice fountain in the center also. It’s a very short walk from the Natural Science Museum too.
