Hurtling through dusty gravel roads is another daily experience coded into my DNA. At this stage of the 365 I am looking for new views and different moments to express (of course, this has nothing to do with the pressure I'm putting on myself to have a strong finish to the project).
As I made my way home last night a look in the rear view mirror saw the usual cloud of dust made golden in the evening light. That brought me to a halt and about 100 out-the-window shots were the result of wrapping my camera strap around my arm and driving the rest of the way home.
When you live rurally, driving is an integral part of life. I was interested to see what the camera captured of my life from behind. Obviously, I was watching the road and concentrating on driving, so these shots are completely serendipitous. There is something about them I love, somehow they seem like a stolen glance into my world.
The only trouble was the photo of the day has to be the hand-on-heart best shot, and the driving shots were missing a little of the magic I had in mind. So the mighty Tasman Sea takes it out once again! She too was a beautiful part of my journey today and if you look closely, you can see the two boats fishing out to sea.
