Do you see that spot where the road disappears into the trees? I want to go there. I want to find what’s around that curve.
I’ll take some pictures when I get there. I’ll use an old camera, probably one I haven’t used before. I’ll want to experience that vintage gear: how it feels in the hands, how easily the controls work.
As soon as I get home, I’ll send the film off for processing so I can see how the camera rendered the light onto the film. Meanwhile, I’ll research what I saw, because there’s usually something to learn. And I’ll write about it, all of it: the road, the camera, the film, the photos, the sights. Through writing I’ll discover what I think and feel.
What are we waiting for? Let’s go! This is joy!
