It has been kind of fun looking through my old photos as I begin to wrap up this project. I found this one tonight and I think this particular house has shown up before in these posts. But the house is a favorite and if you ask why, I wouldn’t be able to tell you. I think it might be the location of it, as it’s on a favorite road of mine and the area is pretty. I have never been in this house and it holds a certain mystery to it. I don’t know if I’ll ever go inside it, but the place is pretty and it will always be a favorite.
One of the best things about country roads in the summer, are the wild flowers that grow along the sides of the roads. Pink, Purple, White, Blue, Orange, and Yellow. Little beauties growing just for the sake of being alive. Untouched and unseen. I drive past them all the time. Today I had to stop and get a picture of some of them.
While most people avoid gravel roads, because of the dust and noise, I’m drawn to them. I love the dust, I love having the road to myself. I love the fields, the farm houses, the cows, and the big, open sky. I’ve always found the coolest places and the best shots while exploring gravel roads. I’ve driven down countless roads, countless times. I usually find something interesting. A lot of the time I don’t get shots. It’s usually just me blaring music, speeding down the road, in my own little world. But every now and then I find something fun.
A good portion of today was spent driving. I had nothing to do today and no really to see. So I drove. I drove down twisting country roads, kicking up dust, speeding past farms and blaring music. I thought about a lot of stuff, daydreamed, and cleared my head. Some days I hate driving. And other days I love it. Today was one of those days. I like to explore, I like having the road to myself, I like my music and I like my alone time.
