#bee line highway
It’s been awhile since I’ve been out with my 8x10, all summer in fact. It felt good to drive out of Phoenix and take in a nice landscape; mile 206 of the Bee Line highway. I’ve been meaning to stop at this prospect for awhile.
As a last resort, when I’m traveling, I’ll mail post-cards to myself with micro-SD cards tapped to them with a selection of my photos from the trip. I sent these six weeks ago from Leticia, Colombia. They arrived yesterday.

"The photo cut off from its natural order is rendered inexplicable, becoming a metaphor for the isolation of human beings from each other and from the world around them."
This was from April. I climbed a mountain in Phoenix before dawn because I’m badass like that. I f’ed up the focus and ruined the shot. All I have is this lovely process-pic.
