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.
