The Cornmaze

IMG_1068 title

Working and learning seem to consume the vast majority of my life lately. Thankfully, a mate invited me to visit the corn maze with his family. Of course this mostly involved me wandering about with my camera.

In addition to the maze, there was also a pumpkin patch.

Unfortunately I didn't think to bring my tripod so i had to hold my breath to do shoot this

The brave leader and navigator for our trek through the maze was Conner the Mapholder.




Across the whole day, the most interesting thing was how people interacted with the maze and each other. From the group (in their 30’s) loudly complaining from the center of the maze that it was to easy or the family laughing every time they walked in a circle, almost everyone interacted differently.
