I was looking at this image over and over again today, and was thinking about what message am I trying to convey to my audience today.
Let me start with the following…
Find a Path to inner solitude;
As I meditate in the garden of peace let me find a Path to inner healing and be quite calm,
So that I may consider what was the most difficult thing that happened to me today and what was my nicest experience today…
The above is a very, very short poem by me in relation to the photo taken today at a shrine called Schoenstatt Retreat Centre. The gardens which have a tranquil effect on you from the time you enter the premises. It is on these premises that I found probably the smallest Chapel, which upon my request to photograph the Chapel, Sister Vivienne agreed as long as the photo would not appear in any magazine. (not so sure about TE, therefore for the time being will not post). I have taken the liberty of posting this image because of the tranquillity it offered me on my visit this afternoon, although I was visiting on another matter entirely.
Image has been cropped mainly from the left side to accentuate the pathway. I have adjusted contrast settings since the weather was overcast and cold. As well as using a grey and white frame. Original posted to workshop.
Comments most appreciated and thank you to every one of you in advance for visiting.

wonderful composition. I like the path that is leading me into the scene. My inner solitude, if I know her well, will be seated under some of this beautiful trees, so it won't be difficult for me to find it. Beautiful post.
Have a nice day,
