Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.
Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!
I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.“
Autumn In The White Carpathians
Rhododendron Laden Path, Mount Rogers, Virginia, USA
On a 106 & Park (BET)list of the Top 6 Things Blue Ivy Thought About the VMAs, Karrueche Tran (a half-Vietnamese, half-African American woman of color) read, "I really did wake up like this because my parents never comb my hair."(apparently the show’s writers came up with the bit and Tran was chosen to read it. this doesn’t excuse karrueche from blame, however)
It is absolutely disgusting and unacceptable that anyone, let alone BET (the BLACK entertainment network!!!!) would spew such disdain for natural black hair. Let’s also keep in mind that Blue Ivy is a CHILD. A little black girl. Who deserves the right to exist and thrive without suck attacks. And although the world has clearly shown no inclination towards the preservation and protection of black children, we really need to start protecting our own and stop participating in such anti-black bullshit.
