Photography is the story I fail to put into words.
But in case you want to read my words too...
Northern Utah Photographer and Videographer
I love drive by shootings!
There...I said it! But of course, my idea of a drive-by shooting is taking a picture as I'm driving down the road. Well, not me driving, but as a passenger. We love to ski in our family, and living close to the mountains and the famous Utah snow means many trips through beautiful scenery a few times a month. Somedays are overcast and gloomy, some days have bluebird skies, and sometimes we get super lucky on the way home with an amazing sunset view! The problem is, that in the canyons, it's not always possible to stop and pull over, even for a quick picture. Add that to the fact that if we stopped every single time I wanted to, we wouldn't get very far very quickly! (All of these images were taken on different days in different canyons!)
Of course, the view brings serenity, but the fact that we have four very noisy and rambunctious boys in our car doesn't mean that we any have peace and quiet. Fortunately, last year I discovered how to find serenity while we drive (and I kick myself for not finding it sooner)...audio books! We love reading in our house, and it was the perfect way to "read" and have some quiet! We are currently on the last book of the Harry Potter series, which we've all read, but it's fun to hear the voices the narrator does. It makes long rides something to look forward to, and it makes them quite peaceful and serene so I can look out the window and enjoy the beautiful scenery. And get a drive-by shooting in!
Do you do anything in your car to enjoy some peace and quiet? I'd love to have some more ideas as we are going on a big road trip this summer!
The Serenity Project is a monthly group project I do with some of my lovely photography friends. To find more serenity in your day, please continue through the circle! Up next is Iris Nelson, Metro Phoenix Photographer.
