Road Trip Takes
I'll be opening up a new page for road trip pictures. I'm not one for taking pictures much, except for when I'm traveling. I don't know why. I just like to enjoy being with people, I suppose, and living in the moment. When I am with people I feel like having a phone or camera out is more of a distraction--unless taking pictures is a joint activity and is done more for comedic effect.
This picture was taken near the area of Battle Mountain, Nevada. I absolutely love these mountains! I love the folds! Maybe someday I'll draw or paint the image. Maybe :) It is so beautiful!
I won't always have the location of the pictures I post. That's something I'll have to work on. This just happens to be a lucky example, I suppose.
Have a wonderful Monday everybody! Good luck getting a great start to the week ahead of you!
The new page (to be created) is partly owing to all the other artists who have shared their pictures on social media pages. Pictures can really open your mind to a whole new world of beauty and wonder. I am grateful to the inviting artists I have come across who have captured the gift of life in its many different shapes and forms, and then opened their treasures to share it with the world. I have desired to give back for some time, in somewhat of a similarly personal way. Facebook collections just don't cut it for me. They're a bit impersonal for my tastes, so you won't find much there from me. I hope you enjoy the artwork, most of which will be unedited/unaltered by photoshop or other such programs, and I don't own a fancy shmancy camera so the quality won't exactly be pristine! I really just don't have the time or money for that kind of editing or work, and I believe that, when viewed in its best light, mother nature doesn't need that kind of editing to capture us with her beauty. I have seen some magnificent edits, though, and I do appreciate that form of artwork as well--especially when the photos are old or in decay, or need an improvement in lighting, etc., in order for its beauty to reveal itself :)
