The Road, The Sky And Some Dirt


Out on the road.

Sometimes I forget myself. I forget to post. I forget to work. I forget to keep in constant contact. I think I did it to myself by joining a couple of new picture sharing sources. I may have confused myself by making my posts more complicated than simple.

We’ll see.

When I lived in New Mexico after the the arrival of Katrina I didn’t have as much to do as I usually did so I took long drives in order to see the state. Sometimes I’d see a scene like this one and I’d tried to do something a little different with the picture.

This one isn’t that unique. But, it’s what I thought of at the time. There’s nothing like the rush of placing your camera on the ground, getting down on your belly and hoping to hell that you don’t meet a friendly snake or some guy driving 100 mph who couldn’t stop in time, even if I wasn’t just a blur on the ground to him.

Luckily, neither of those things happened.

I’m a little crafty. I looked in both directions with a long lens with one camera. Nothing coming? Even at a distance? Good. Down on the road I go with another camera and a wide angle lens, work fast and get off the road.

Didn’t matter. I didn’t see another car coming from anywhere for at least ten minutes.

Happy Sunday.

    I would guess you could feel the vehicle coming when you are on the road.

      One would hope. But if I feel it through my body as I’m laying one the road nothing good might come of it.

    A gem! I did two pastels from New Mexico. Love the vistas there from the mountains.

        Also did four paintings. The sky and land combination so inspired me.

        That’s why so many artists move to NM. One of these days.
