What's the winter's cold negative press/ what's the spring with it's air of rebirth / to those felled under wildest duress / trading freedom for a false sense of worth
After a very long hiatus, I've decided to start updating the photo blog again. I plan to pick up where I left off (a year/ two years ago? I don't even know), mixing photos (mostly photos I've taken around sw virginia or wherever I roam) with poetry, literature, and music.
The photo above was taken in Mouth of Wilson, Virginia, on a recent drive from Boone, NC. I missed a lot of potentially great photos on the trip--a faded red 1970's RV with a Confederate Flag covering the front window, and, ironically, the words "These colors don't fade" written across the top; two single wide trailers, both painted cornflower blue, aligned perfectly beside one another, one from the 1970's probably, the other more recent; etc.
I've lost some of the fearlessness or stupidity (maybe just rudeness) that once allowed me to pull over in someone's driveway and snap a shot I felt like I had to have. In any case, I hope to start posting again regularly, especially once spring arrives and I can start walking around and exploring without freezing. I also hope to start on a sort of nature photography project I've thought about doing for a long time but haven't gotten around to.
Current listening (Jason Isbell), great stuff:
