Stop and look around... 

There are a lot of people in this world who always seem to be on a mission. You've undoubtedly seen these folks hustling through their daily tasks. They make lists; they check lists off. They set goals; they accomplish those goals...

They aren't necessarily bad people and the world is grateful that they exist. It would seem though that not enough people stop to look around anymore. It almost seems as if people have lost their ability to stop, even just for a second, to check out the wonders of the world around them. 

Even on vacation people seem to either chose to run off to some secluded place and to drink and sleep and rest and nap. They take in nothing and just chill. Other's go on panic-driven adventures where, even on vacation, they follow itineraries and set schedules and freak out.

Today I got took a friend on a trip. We had no idea where we were going, nor did we really care where we ended up. We took a strange little tour of Thorold and St.Catharines and I showed her some of the hidden gems around town.

The next album is a collection of photos taken inside the old Merritt barn on Beaverdam Rd. (I don't condone breaking and entering and you should ask permission before entering private properties and buildings...)

Just remember that the world is absolutely full of wonders. All it takes is a little curiosity and the effort involved in taking a minute to explore. There's a whole world of possible adventures out there...go take a peak.
