stormy skies . . .

Posted by
DULCIE (Danville, CA, United States) on 19 October 2011 in Landscape & Rural.

My recent 18-hour round trip to Oregon was an adventure in pressing myself to the car window taking shots with my iPhone. It passed the time and made me a happy traveler. It was much more entertaining than trailing toilet paper out the window as my sister and I did when we were children. I know, we were BAD. There was a different mentality then about littering and ecology and living 'green.' ;-) So, nowadays, there's no toilet paper littering the roadway, but hundreds of digital shots clogging up my computer. Whooppee !!

Some of my best inspiration comes while I drive, but sadly sometimes there's no place to park and get the shot I want, I'm never the passenger it seems always the driver.
