Reply to "Without"

Frankly, I don't like either option.  They are grammatical, but I can't imagine any native speaker of English phasing a conditional that way.  David's examples "If he hadn't looked ... " and "If he didn't look ... " are much more natural.

The only option that works for me is simply "walked":

Without looking where he was going, the man walked into a tree.
