Roads connect dots of civilization and often are seen as only a means to get “there”. You have to stop to appreciate what happens along these paved conveyances. This crossroads gets a lot of use but seen only as an interchange. It was odd to see all this cloud activity in the middle of a drought and no rain. There was something strangely attractive about this scene that prompted me to pull over and get out of the car. [ Getting out of the car is a secret photo tip ] The highway reveals cows grazing, abandoned machinery and small glimpses of everyday life. It is this “everyday life” that makes up the fabric of our culture, where a thousand insignificant events form to make something very important in the lives of those whose driveways connect to the strands of asphalt crisscrossing the land.
