You Ain’t Going Anywhere

A break from ropin’ and ridin’.

You just never know.

You’re driving along and you see something that interests you. You stop. You starting making pictures. You start talking. Your newly found subjects know that they are somewhat interesting in this day and age, so they agree to let you keep working. It’s a kind of luck. Photographer’s luck.

When people get stuck, I usually tell them to go outside and take a look around. That usually will open your eyes. Don’t worry about it. Just go do something. The more that you worry, the harder it becomes to break free. That’s what I know.

The picture. More experiments. In terror. Actually, I wanted this picture to have an old-fashioned feel even though it was taken in modern times. So, I tinkered with it. This is the result.


  1. Reminds me of a story I read once, in which a group of old men were hanging outside the barbershop talking when a young guy comes along and says to one of the oldsters, “Hey old man, what time is it?” to which the old one answered, “Why you asking, you ain’t going nowhere no way.”

      1. That’s what I was taught in my earliest years. “don’t take the picture. Let the picture take you.” At the time, I thought it was only about being in the field. Now I know it’s the entire process. 🙂
