Country Drive on a Winter Day
Though my coffee and comfy chair tried to persuade me otherwise, this morning I finally convinced myself that it was time to get out of the house and go take some photos. With no destination in mind, I grabbed my camera, my coat, and a pair of heavy boots, I fired up the car, cranked up the heat, and headed off to find some back roads.
With no destination in mind, I headed North on Rt. 13 towards the Delaware line. Stopping for a traffic signal on Peerless Road in Showell, Maryland, I obeyed my urge by the urge to make a left on Peerless Road. Of course, I've traveled these roads many times before, but the mood and emotions evoked on each trip change with the seasons; And today definitely felt like winter.
I love to photograph the old, the abandoned, and the forgotten. I imagine all of the souls that frequented these places in days gone by. I'm not superstitious, but I swear that sometimes it's as though I can still hear them there...begging to be remembered.
Here's a look at what my camera an I saw today. I played with white balance, curves, and saturation today, as if to try to breath some warmth and light into an otherwise cold and dreary set of photos. I hope that you enjoy them.
