Reflections Of The Open Road

“All my life I’ve always come back to one thing,
my need to feel free and the need to feel the breeze,
the ride provides a freedom this gypsy needs,
where every road is another blessed memory,
a new experience to carry inside my journey,
a sense of belonging to a familiar tribe,
a brotherhood that goes beyond a bloodline.”
Jess “Chief” Brynjulson, Highway Writings

  1. Have tried to get a shot like this one. Excellent by the way. My camera won’t focus on it well. Maybe with my new lens it will work better. 😀

  2. Beautiful words and photograph. Thanks for sharing!

  3. On our first road trip across the country when our first daughter was 6 months old I experimented a bit with taking photos of what could be seen in the rear view mirror. Taking pictures of road trains at 100kph while trying not to steer into the wrong lane and get the camera right is always fun.

    • Haha! Well, I was not the driver for this photo. Now do you drive from the left or right side there?

      And this comment was also in spam- stupid WordPress! 😦

      • We drive on the left side of the road, which is the right side of the road.

        Truck mirrors are good for taking photos with because they are so much bigger 🙂

        Maybe all those posts I’ve made abusing WP are coming back to haunt me 🙂

      • Is it the left or is it right? I’m so confused…We drive on the right which is correct 😉
        I am inclined to agree that WP may be retaliating! 😀

      • The left is right (or the left is correct 🙂 )

        I can see why you have so many accidents over there, it’s because you drive on the wrong side of the road 🙂

        WP should behave and I wouldn’t pick on it 🙂

      • Haha! Well, I’ve never had an accident. But, I drove on the left side of the road once in the Cayman Islands. It was the scariest drive of my life! Of course the driver sits on the right side of the car, it was hard to drive a standard the opposite of how I learned. :O But, I will admit, we Americans do tend to be a bit crazy. I am what one would call an aggressive driver 😉

      • I’ve driven on the right side quite a few times, the key to doing it without being scared is to be asleep 🙂

        In the truck I’m aggressive as they come but in my own car I’m a sedate old lady, even Miss Daisy would get out of my car.

        I think we all have our fair share of crazy though, too many overconfident boy racers in this country

      • Haha! 😀 Well, I’ll tell you that I was going through my brakes so quickly, at one point my husband put racing grade routers on them. I have a need for speed. 😉 (I like your Miss Daisy reference, good movie!)

      • I’ve spent too much time on the road over the years to be a speed demon these days, I prefer the slow life. Apart from that I do like the idea of not spending money on things I don’t have too, fuel, tyres, brakes.
