Photography: Sunday Drive

“All he needed was a wheel in his hand and four on the road.” -Jack Kerouac

Yesterday I took a leisurely drive with my daughter through the more undeveloped parts of our area. It was a clear, beautiful autumn day and I stopped occasionally to take photos when the roads provided enough space to pull over. My photos this week are the best of those images. I edited them all to have a similar tone. Is it my best work? No. Is it okay to simply like them and not love them? Sure. I’m learning and growing. It’s all part of the process.

These next few days are the final push to finish up NaNoWriMo. I’m behind. I’ve got to write 7,652 words by Wednesday. I’ve reached the “Brain, activate Deadline mode” phase. Here’s where being an unpublished writer gets tricky. Nobody really cares if I make this deadline except me. I have to be the one continuously digging deep to make my deadlines. There are really no consequences if I fail. Yet, I don’t want to fail. I don’t want to let myself down.

To everyone giving me support and cheering me on, thank you. You have no idea how much I appreciate it. May everyone have a wonderful week filled with the things you love best.

    • For real! Luckily these roads are close by and I didn’t eat up too much gas. I used to have to commute an hour a day and luckily I don’t anymore. It sure makes driving far more enjoyable when it can be for pleasure.

  2. Gorgeous photos, Bridgette, as always. I just love the redness of the soil in the second photo (with the naked trees). It reminds me of the earth on the Devon and Dorset coast in the UK, where the soil is a deep red colour. I’ve only been there once, a very long time ago, but have always remembered that. Good luck with the NaNoWriMo. Take care, Bridgette. Xx 🌼💕
