So its August!

and the second day of August at that! In 1992 I spent my birthday alone in the Big Bend. I was happy to be there and free to enjoy the time. There was a  fantastic ever changing sky full of clouds and I drove over the park taking pictures of the sky. I gave myself the boundaries of making the image mostly the sky but requiring at least a small bit of the earth in every shot. When I got to Burro Mesa ( above) the clouds conspired to place a micro-burst of rain right on its top. I can still smell it!

Forty-Six Plus Years Ago

I took these pictures, totally oblivious to how uncomfortable I was making these men. Just as oblivious to the culture ( read racism) of the town that gave them no room to protest. It didn't take too long to learn about that.

Too Long

Far, far too long since I've been out to the Big Bend. I'm really missing those huge clouds, the smell of rain coming, and the exhilarating change from 100 degree plus temps to the 50's or cooler when the rain hits you.

And Now Its July!

and the Fourth of July as well! Hard to see any hands on the wheel? But I still believe in this country.
