PhotoHunt#28 Walking





Walking is fine if you do it leisurely and you have the option to ride; but if you have to walk with a heavy sack on your head without promise of any ride, it's another story.

Walking with a heavy load is indeed a more difficult walk - on several different levels. Nice shot for the theme - and thanks for stopping by!

That is a great photohunt. Very 'real'

For me the worst of it would be having to hike along a highway where fast cars might be passing.

Nice take!

Good shot! I admire people from the provinces, they have the strength and stamina to walk long distances even with a heavy load.

Thanks for stopping by to look at my PH entry =)
