Roads are synonymous with freedom. Roads denote a journey, moving forward and arriving at a new and amazing destination. Even fulfilling our destiny. Roads are not only a way to get from point A to point B but are also routes of communication and a way to stay connected with family, friends, other cities and even countries.
There are many photographers that have understood this, and they have captured roads in highly poetic ways. Indeed, in photography, roads offer fantastic composition opportunities and can be used very effectively as leading lines.
Today we want to share with you some images of roads to get you inspired on your own photographic journey.
