a view from a road trip


a view from a road trip, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

making time as best we can
pushing the speed limit a little
rolling across tarmac
that shines like water in the distance
still hours to go
but when I make that sound
that sudden intake of breath
he looks at me
"you want to stop?"
...
"no" I say, "we shouldn't"
he smiles and finds a turnaround on the busy highway
and then I am running through the stubbled grass of the ditch
camera in hand
capturing the old buildings
that sink slowly
into the yellowed sea of the prairie

When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
