Sometimes I wish I could stick the pedal to the metal and drive every day away searching for creative fuel. It seems that during those times, when the creativity couldn’t be juiced out of my brain by the mightiest of juicers, if I simply get in the car and drive… that’s when it all starts to come together.
Winding down those narrow back roads, the curves begin to speak and the scenery begins to glow. The most interesting places, places that I may pass on a frequent basis, jump out at me and say, “Hey there, I’ve been here… waiting for you to wake up and see what is around you!”
It’s then that I realize that the pace of life has suddenly swept me away to the point that I haven’t been able to notice something right in front of me. Not even if only to *snap* and walk away forever to capture only a moment within that place.
I captured this photo whilst on my way back from Colorado where I spent a wonderful time with family. On the 11 hour drive I found plenty of time to soak in my surroundings. Somewhere in the desolate open range of New Mexico, we stopped for a bathroom break. This motel was where we turned around to get back on the highway.
It was the best shot I could get since no one was going to wait around for me to do a mini photo-session, that being said I am still quite pleased with the end result.
Hope you enjoy, and I hope I didn’t bore you as I rambled on over one picture, but this photo continues to remind me that I need to slow down the pace of life, and look around. It reminds me of the beauty that is all around us. I hope you can find meaning of your own within it, or at very least enjoy how awesome it turned out.
