Getting Lost On Purpose ~ Escaping The Winter Blues
Every so often I get in the car, just me and my camera, and I hit the road with no destination in mind. I stop at some favorite spots, such as the old tree in the prairie which I have photographed a hundred times because it has gesture and speaks to me. Soon after, the sky starts clearing, and I notice a fence running across the tundra-like landscape like a wound. I decide to make a turn on a snow covered dirt road in search of new treasures when an old car greets me from the top of a snowbank. The light on my dashboard goes on, warning me to refuel. It’s time to find my way back home. I stop one more time to shoot a splash of color at a nearby farm. I feel like a kid on a treasure hunt.
