Recently I’ve been resurrecting some old posts and sharing them on social media. The nature of chronological blog posting means things just get buried over time. Sometimes old posts need a bit of a… tickle.
One of the posts that I shared last weekend was about the old Underwood and Petty service station that I’d seen in Strawberry Plains, Tennessee in 2018. My friend Andy left a comment on Facebook about making more of an effort to stop and take photographs or to document such things in his future travels.
Well? The future is now.
And now. And now. And.. you get the point. We’re always one second away from the future. So, why wait?
Motorcycling has proven to be a satisfying and socially distant activity for me over the last 20+ years. Getting out on your own to snap a few interesting photos seems like an okay idea to me! Don’t you think?
So with that, are you looking for something to do? Looking for something to post about? Why not go snap a photograph or two of some of those places in your local area that are hanging on by a thread? You know – those places that are in danger of becoming a “do you remember when so-and-so used to be on the corner there?”
Take the picture. Capture the memory. Share it.
You might be the reason someone remembers or tells a story, or recollects fondly. You may even become the spark that sends someone out to explore and see something with their own eyes.
Or, maybe you’ll just get out and enjoy a ride on your motorcycle.
If you find something to share, leave a comment and let me know!
