What a beautiful day it is today. Perhaps we shall go on a little adventure, just me and myself.
I can't wait to see what is out there. There's just so much I want to see...
So little time.
I am finally here. The air is so rich with promise and excitement! But let's digress. She's somewhere out there...
I really hope that she is okay.
Somewhere over the golden gate bridge, I wander. And as I wander, I can't help but wonder about her.
My little trip is almost over. But there's still no sight of her.
Hopefully someday, we'll meet again.
Oh how I dread the mundane routine of the ordinary.
You have slapped me and awakened me from my dream. What a miserable reality.
Even still, you cross my mind every time I lay down. As I try to close my eyes...
I stay up, and think of you.
But at least I can bask in the warmth of your memory.
How beautiful it is.
Looking back at these photos now I can only think how lucky we were to be able to live such a beautiful summer crossing so many states, sleeping in so many different places, visiting so many natural parks, cities, bars and everything that can be found along the way.
I never planned it as a project, but as a visual diary of what most caught my attention during that long journey.
After all, these are probably the most special photos I have ever taken.
I hope you enjoy them and that they remind you of summers with family far from the worries that affect us today.
