… to be back. Back to taking photographs, back to creating new works, and back, sitting right here on a Sunday morning, sharing it all with you! Oh wait, it’s Monday, Labor Day. Still, I can’t think of a better way to spend this extra day off 🙂
This summer’s road trip was just what was needed to break a persisting photographic slump… From PA to GA and back again. First stop, Blacksburg, VA, where, nestled in a little valley was the first of many barns we would see… Fortunately, this one was in a place where I could actually hit the brakes, turn the car around, and go get the shot.
The main reason for this road trip, my nieces wedding in Ball Ground, GA, a little town not far from Atlanta… Navigating Atlanta’s mega highways and traffic didn’t leave much time for picture taking; just getting to the venue was a feat, and in the nick of time. We did return to Ball Ground the next morning, where I found some roadside treasures and we strolled a beautiful botanical garden; and I can’t wait to get to those photos!
Next Asheville, NC. If you haven’t been, is a must! Artsy, fun, colorful and vibrant… Oh, side note, did you know Asheville has the most breweries per capita in the U.S.? Let’s just say you might want to pace yourself…
And did I mention colorful? My tour guide/husband did an amazing job at getting us off the beaten path and finding some of Asheville’s hidden treasures.
And it wouldn’t have been much of a road trip if we didn’t hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway… with all it’s winding roads and breathtaking views.
The final destination on this amazing road trip, Harrisonburg, VA and Harper’s Ferry, W. VA… historic sites and National Parks, natural wonders and some not so natural wonders.
Once home… and over these last few weeks, I haven’t stopped. More photo destinations and so many ideas, I can’t keep them all straight. And, oh, it feels so good!
