Standing Strong

Our recent post about black and white photos stirred some creative juices and prompted Eileen Burns, Ryder-Walker’s managing director, to send over this photo.

Eileen’s dad was a professional photographer, so Eileen grew up around images and developed a particular love for black and white. It’s not surprising then, that Eileen would choose b&w to shoot this photo of RW guest Margo Rubenstein on the last day of our Slovenia Triglav Circuit.

Eileen writes, “This photo says a lot to me. A bit tired and disheveled. Yet standing strong. I love the worn out poles just hanging and relaxing after a good trek.”

She adds, “The stairs kind of speak to the trail that we took that day, broken and yet very sturdy.”

Do you have photos from past treks that speak to you? Please share them. Send us a note or post them to our Facebook page.
