Show us your interpretation of today’s theme, “Experimental.”

Regular photo challenge participants may recall that, to bust stress and keep fit, I like to run. Recently, well into fall, we enjoyed a couple of days reaching +25° Celsius (77° F). Wanting to embrace that last burst of summer, I went out one warm day feeling a bit experimental about my running route.

I realized that in all the years of running through the park, I had never once strayed from the paved path to attempt the narrow, rolling trails along the river. I veered into the underbrush and was happily astonished at the beautiful fall colors and river views. I had to stop every once in a while to document the day.

With all the brief photo stops, that run was no candidate for a personal best time — though I’d say that being experimental and choosing a new path made my run a great time I will always remember.

This theme is as wide open as the prairie sky. How will you portray “Experimental”? Will it be the fresh lemon-cranberry scones you whipped up, tired of the usual blueberry muffins? Will it be a close-up of the piano where you just composed an original in a key new to you? Will it be capturing a subject using varying compositions or photographic techniques? Regardless of how you choose to show us “Experimental,” I’m looking forward to seeing the results.

  1. I am a pretty boring person. In other words I never really experiment or try something new and adventurous. But I would say I did experiment once when I galloped on a horse across a beach having never ridden at more than a walk before. Something on my bucket list is to experiment, take a chance. Perhaps a road trip, I would love that.

    1. Hello, L.D. — always wonderful to see you here with a photo for the challenge.

      I love the expression on the face of the man on the right and the fun story that goes along with the image.
