I mentioned the other day that I am working on a number of series. All the series fit under the broad banner called “Roadside Attractions”. I am currently calling today’s incomplete series “The Thin Line”. Though I have posted some of these in the past month, I thought it might be interesting to show them all together as a cohesive work in progress.
A week ago I found a location that had potential. Yesterday morning the alarm went off early, and once again I was bound for the Longview area. The intended destination was too far for the time allotted. I was tired and out of mental sorts for most of the morning. In fact, at one point I pulled onto the side of the road and went to sleep for half an hour.
The morning was not without its rewards. I did add to couple of series, and here is my consolation prize.
Last weekend there was no road trip. Instead, I experimented in the garden. Those experiments produced lessons for me but nothing I care to share. Earlier this morning, there were roads new and old to me. I slept through the alarm at 3:45, and only woke up at 4:20 when my wife asked me if I was still going for a drive. 10 minutes later I was out the door.
So, I have started to think in terms of series. All these photos were taken this morning, and are contributions to multiple series, except for the goat. The goat was for fun. He and his mate were near the middle of the gravel road and rather hard to miss. Though I was thinking of series this morning, I was also just reveling in the drive and the experience.
Rather than a collection of related thoughts, these photos and today’s posting are Works in Progress. The photos are numbered in the order they were captured.
