This quote from a Lord Huron song is how the west moves me. First images of a multi-year project.
I like nothing more than a path stretched out before me. Calling me on to the horizon, forward to something new. On bike or on foot, curiosity will always propel me forward.
I love the places that were too hard to keep. Where there is only wind rattling corrugated tin and the scuttling of field mice, now. Where lives have moved on and left the place behind. Where there aren’t even memories to ask about.
Cheap panoramic camera from the 90s. Rolls of black and white film. Riding a bicycle. All you need to experience the world.
