Looking South on Dow
On This Date: Photo taken 1/11/2012.
Here we have a perfectly typical Joel Dinda landscape shot. There's an isolated tree; a field of stubble, a distant settlement (it's Little Venice) along Highway 50, and even more distant trees. And a wee bit of fog, obscuring the houses. The road, too, running on south apparently forever.
I took this photo early in my 2012 photo-a-day project. My photographic objective for the day wasn't this scene; I planned an image of the abandoned house that's just north of this location. But if you're stopped by the road and see another shot--well, why not?
This image blows up quite well, by the way. Not bad for a hand-held shot with my pocket cam. Not sure I can still do that; five years have aged me.
But there are also certain archetypes I capture over and over again. This is one of those.
