The Country

When I was a child, my family would pile into the car on a Sunday afternoon and drive into the rural areas of Maryland. My sisters and I played a game telling our father to turn left, right or go straight ahead, never knowing where we would end up. We just wandered.

 

Today as I wander the country roads of the Midwest, with no destination in mind, I look for road-side treasures to photograph. I am reminded of my past when there was time for aimless wandering.  I am reminded how quickly time passes as I capture these treasures with my camera before they disappear entirely.

 

I never imagined that the Sunday drives from my past would  become a life-long passion.
