Pedestrians Designed for Walking


I love taking original photos and then using tools in Photoshop to create what I refer to as a form of Digital Impressionism. Especially when they are taken in urban settings which include the pictures in this post.

I took the first shot at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, which inspires wonder through the power of art.

The topic today is Pedestrian as in designed for walking, or walkers, which are the definitions I am using for this week’s post.
The second picture I took downtown Minneapolis during the first snow. In the distance, you can see two pedestrian footbridges of many, which connect 80 full city blocks and over 11 miles.  They are part of what many who work downtown enjoy, especially during snow or rain. It is also great for those who travel and stay in Minneapolis. Both the picture and today’s topic got me thinking of the different ways and reasons we walk.

 

We walk to visit people, to go shopping, to meetings and to see art
Sometimes we walk to clear our minds which often helps us find a fresh perspective
When working in urban settings, people take lunch to get out of the office, to talk, to watch or to be pedestrians
Walking is a great tool when we want to be alone with our thoughts and to think through processes
It also can be known as great cardio, depending on the pace of your gait
When was the last time you went on a walk for the sole purpose of walking, even if you didn’t want to?
Do you remember how good you felt when it was done?
If you do, please share. Perhaps leaving your comments below will motivate someone else to step out on faith.
