“And the walls became the world all around.” ~ Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are
This Sunday morning I decided to venture out into the unknown, on my own. The “unknown” being various areas in my college town and the “on my own” being with my camera. I had a few goals in mind: complete my landscape photo project for class, breath in some fresh, October air, and remove myself from my weekend coma.
For this great expedition I heard my mother’s advice ringing in my ears and chose to wear comfortable, warm clothing and practical sneakers. Although these adjectives don’t exactly elicit the thought of a stylish ensemble, I did my best to look sleek and casual. As I set out on my big adventure for the day, I could not help but feel like Max from Where the Wild Things Are in my oversized, white blanket coat. All I was missing was the golden crown.
As I journeyed through the trees and roads of upstate New York, I became very calm and my heart felt happy. Exploring alone is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon, even if it is just in your own backyard. Get out of bed, down the stairs, out the door and see what the world has waiting for you.
