Week 3: Journey

Let me first answer your question by saying yes, I was driving while I took this photo. Not smart, not advisable, not something I normally do. But this stretch of road was just begging to be shot and I couldn’t pass it up, particularly since my camera just happened to be on the seat next to me. Must have been a sign.

The freeway was relatively empty so I wasn’t concerned about cars, but it’s still kind of tough to settle into a shot when you’re going 65mph and can’t look through the viewfinder for long to compose. It’s just a bit of happy luck then that this particular shot holds the metaphor of my life’s journey: the road is long and there are no guarantees of what’s around the bend, but you can always bail at the last second.

Such is my life: sometimes I do and sometimes I don’t, but it always turns out just fine in the end.

And now let’s journey (that’s right, I said it) toΒ Jen’s place. She’s always cooking up something groovy on her blog.
