My township, Montgomery Township, is mostly farmland and woodland and streams and hiking trails. It’s rural, with narrow country roads without sidewalks, lots of ditches and foxes and wild turkey in the backyard, and it’s not unusual to see a farm tractor on the one-lane roadway. However, because of our proximity to New York City and Philadelphia, the area is considered suburban.
I’ve shared some of the photographs I’ve captured while finding solace in the wooded areas around my neighbourhood. I live in a townhouse community, a planned neighbourhood that is an excellent example of the uniformity of the New Jersey suburbs[^1]. Our neighbourhood is private, shared space. All of the wooded areas around the neighbourhood are private and collectively owned by the housing association of which all homeowners are voting members.
The last time I was in the woods, I shot a 36 exposure roll of Kodak Professional Ektachrome E100 colour reversal film. I still haven’t mailed out the roll for development but wanted to share some photographs from yesterday of what I experience when I am forest bathing.
