One of the best perks the City of Norfolk, Nebraska has added during the past few years is the paved bicycle/hiking path. Specifically the path that was built along the river in the eastern part of town.
The segment I like best begins in my neighborhood and continues beneath the new East Norfolk Avenue bridge. From there, it continues north to Johnson Park, crosses First Street, then follows the flood control levee, northwest to near the YMCA.
Earlier this week, I decided to enjoy a brisk sunny afternoon stroll along the trail. My habit is to slide my old Sony “Steady Shot DSC-W800” palm-size camera into my coat pocket. They can be bought new for less than $100 USD if you shop around. I got mine second-hand at a garage sale for ten-bucks. I like it better than the camera feature on my Galaxy phone. It’s perfectly suitable for those times when photography is not the primary reason for leaving home.
I ended up shooting a few dozen shots along the trail because the lighting provided ideal modeling for the subjects that caught my eye. I selected a few of the better pictures to share with you on today’s post.
Near the location of the old “Bon Ton” flour mill that was demolished several decades ago.
It’s good to bring some sort of camera along wherever you go because you never know what you might find.
