This week I’d like to see you all head out and document a road. It’s that simple. However, take some time to think about what a road is, where you live. For some a road can be a walking path, made of simply dirt. For others, it’s a major superhighway.

For some, you might just consider your commute or path to work or school. Along that route, you’re bound to have plenty of photo opportunities that document your common road. Or maybe there’s a special place close to home where you like to visit on your days off? Where ever it is, please take some time to consider a unique or fun way to share it with the rest of us.

You might think about changing your perspective, like each of the two photos above. Or you may try photographing it in different light. Then select the best result.

As always, make sure you share your result with the rest of the PhotoChallenge Community! Google+, Facebook, and Flickr are the most common.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
