the fourth of july is supposed to be a day of celebration, but my day didn't start out that way. i awoke at 6 am with a severely congested head, the bronchitis i have had for the last 5 weeks, and a really bad panic attack was about to occur. i knew i had to do one of two things......get out and walk or get in the car and DRIVE. i grabbed my clothes, dressed, for some reason grabbed my camera along with my purse, and headed out the door. i walked through the front door and knew i had made the right choice. the usually warm, humid air of morning was crisp and cool. a bird followed me from the house to the car, and stayed just a short distance out of my reach. i did manage to start off my "photo trek" by snapping the little critter right over my head. thank goodness i didn't get covered in bird poop.
i headed for the country, realizing there wasn't much country anymore, mostly new buildings, houses, strip malls, convenience stores..........but i was determined to help quell my panic attack by shooting something with my camera. following are the results of my trek.
1) The bird.
2) Heading south, following the rails.
3) Where am i going?
4) Forsaken barn.
5) Small town USA.
6) Small town justice....newly remodeled court house.
7) Store fronts in the morning haze.
8) Old time religion.
9) Forgotten history.
my panic attack quickly disappeared and i had a blast finding something to shoot in the early morning hours. wish i could do this every morning..........
i hope you enjoyed my trek.
NEVER LEAVE A PAGE UNTURNED.....
