Yesterday evening, I checked the weather and said to myself, “self tomorrow will be a good morning, and you should get your ass out of bed bright and early, drive just west of Drumheller, and explore an area on your list.”
4:30 this morning arrived. I turned over, saying to myself it’s too early. 65 minutes later I awoke again and 15 minutes later I was out the door.
I was thinking of cultural landscapes, as I drove. At its simplest cultural landscapes are vistas that recognize the human touch to the land. Later in the day, I was also thinking the photographic explorations I share with you are often all over the map. As a result, the photos appear disconnected. To be honest not only are the photos disconnected, but my thoughts are not always coherent. Today though, I have 4 photos exploring cultural landscapes. As well I wanted to let you know visually that these were roadside attractions.
By the time I reached my intended destination, I had become so distracted by the previous hours’ light, the best light of the morning was gone. These are some of the distractions.
