Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

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.

Some people awaken spiritually without ever coming into contact with any meditation technique or any spiritual teaching. They may awaken simply because they can’t stand the suffering anymore.

Ren Hang: Anatomy of the image

Artist on Tumblr

The revelation of early 2014, Ren Hang is a provocative young  Chinese “photographer and poet”  who explores the possibilities of the body with an uninhibited body and a playful, stylized shamelessness. Condemned by the Chinese intelligentsia, his work has garnered international acclaim at exhibitions around the world. In 2010, he received the Terna Prize for Contemporary Art.
