I haven’t really been picking my camera up much lately. Here’s a simple shot I took last month while camping around North Carolina. We were at Donaldson River Campground pretty close to Brevard. Sarah was napping so I decided to wander around in the haze a short afternoon shower left behind. The place was just about empty and had a strange feel to it.
Sarah, my brother, and I have just got a new website off the ground with our first few posts. It’s called Fresh off the Trail. We are going to talk about places we’ve been, hikes we’ve done, beer, and just stuff we like in general. There is some food in there too. That’s the idea behind it. Hopefully a few people out there will find it interesting. Check it out often.
Just a quick share today. This familiar photo was published on the cover of an edition of the South Atlantic Modern Language Association’s journal. I have someone who did some work for them to thank for the opportunity. No money was exchanged, but that’s okay. It’s always nice to get my stuff out there. (Yes, it does say 2011. I think they are a few editions behind.)
I was digging through some old files and came across this tranquil image. I wrote something to go along with it a while back too. Photos inspiring creativity is the spirit of the blog, so I’ll share part of it with everyone. Maybe it will provide some nice relief for the summer heat too.
The story is called Twin Pines, here goes:
Somehow this little guy got stuck in my house, but he found a very nice place to relax by a window. When you find yourself in a place you don’t particularly want to be, look around a bit. A tiny oasis like one this might be waiting on you.
