I walked down into my Grandmother’s kitchen this Christmas morning to spy the sun breaking through the winter cloud blanket. Bright colors prompted me to put on my boots and see what I could find. I walked down the road and enjoyed the silent breeze that started to wake as the sun coming up. There’s something special about the morning calm no matter where you are in the world. It’s the world waking up. Light pours over the horizon and within a matter of hours the landscape is a completely different place. The entire process is fascinating.
The person walking down the road is me – I like shooting people, and I don’t always have another person to shoot. Self shots require you to set up a tripod and set the timer. A large Chevy truck, with a confused person at the steering wheel, drove by very slowly at one point while I was snapping away. I’m sure he assumed my tripod was a gun mount and wondered why I was running out in front of it. This particular road is a very desolate country road and it doesn’t often have crazy photographers running around on it. I’m sure he’s still telling the locals about what he witnessed today.
