I went on a bike ride recently on Tulsa’s RiverParks Trails alongside the Arkansas River. I love the trails because one can ride for miles and miles without crossing a street. I took along my cheap GoPro clone camera that I have had for years. It takes a bad photo ever ten seconds. I end up deleting almost all the bad photos but I keep a few and run them through Adobe Lightroom to make highly edited bad photos. I kind of like them actually.
I like how the camera and then Lightroom distorts the colors. I also like it when people are involved so they are kind of like street photos but on a trail.
To me these photos capture of sense of not just solitude but aloneness like everybody else in the world has disappeared.
Familiar scenes seem vacant.
On the other hand this looks like a guy out for a run.
I also brought a “good camera” a lightweight superzoom and took a couple shots across the river. This building is the River Spirit Casino.
And this one is a collection of office buildings that used to be the Oral Robert University medical school and hospital.
So if you are on the Tulsa River Parks and see an overweight old guy on a bicycle with a go pro clone mounted on his handlebars smile real big!
