Chain and Bolt
Sometimes it's not the grand picture of things that holds the ultimate key, is it. Often, as we know, the truly simplistic offerings clutch some ultimate magic for us. Most of my life, I have traveled the 'blue highways' of this state and others with my cameras in my backpack or at least in my backseat ready to capture the twists and turns of this 'little trip' I'm on. I like to set a goal or two as I head out. You know... "Hey, I'm heading to the West End for that snow covered street or Riverton to shoot the Grange." I don't think I've ever said to E- "I'm heading to the pier to photograph a chain and bolt." Life just pulls us along sometimes. I say: Just let go; just float! Like this morning, sitting on a bench, just resting for a spell. And there it was. Almost at my feet. Voila!
