I Would Not Be Here Without You
Thank you Thank you Thank you! to all who pledged to support my project. I left Oakland on Saturday, April 7th and have been on the road every day since. I arrived in Clarksdale last night and after numerous technical challenges (including realizing in Southern California that I had forgotten my laptop bag and all of my maps in my traveling companion's bathroom), I am typing this update from my hotel room in Lula, MS, about a fifteen minute drive from Clarksdale.
I have no photo processing software at all so I am going to do my best to share some photos along the way with you using what I can find online or just my raw, unprocessed images. I expect those photographs to be more "polished" once I am able to work on them in Lightroom when I return home.
Below is a quick recap of my journey thus far, along with a link to my flickr site where I will be posting a few photos today in a new set called Call & Response. I hope to provide new photos in that set and updates here, at least once a day throughout the rest of the trip, as time, sleep deprivation avoidance and wifi availability allows.
Day 1: Oakland to Victorville (Two weeks to focus on taking photographs? The reality sets in... most certainly the happiest day of my life thus far.)
Day 2: Victorville to Flagstaff (Let the nosebleeds begin!)
Day 3: Flagstaff to Albuquerque (Oh! New Mexico, your sky intoxicates!)
Day 4: Albuquerque to Oklahoma City (I want to roll around naked in that bright orange-y red soil!)
Day 5: Oklahoma City to Clarksdale (The Trees!)
Here's a link to my flickr photostream:
Thank you again for supporting this project. I would not be here without you.
