There are times we look, but do not see... passing up beauty in a rush to destinations... so, I took the challenge by fellow vimeo member Andrew Garcia and decidied to litererally "stop and smell the roses". It turns out that mid-winter is not the best time for roses... so, like Andrew, I opted for mile markers instead. I traveled seven miles from my door, stopping at each mile marker to film what I found there. It was a great exercise.
