My Day on the Road
Out driving on Saturday...trying to find fall. I saw this field bordered by these swaying grasses and purple asters. I had seen them last year and remembered that it would make a nice fall picture. So here I was, a year later, and I just had to get a shot. Our town was having a Turkey Testicle Festival that day, so lots of motorcycles were zooming down Kennedy Hill Road. I was driving far too slowly for these guys and gals. I decided to pull over, but where? There weren't many places to pull off the road. Either a steep incline or some places I would have to walk too far from the car. I waited for traffic thinking to myself...why did I have to pick this day? I couldn't wait till next week...they might be gone. Rain is predicted for the end of the week and I might not get a chance to get out. No, here I was...today was the day. So, as soon as the traffic eased, I pushed open the heavy door...I was parked at a slant with the passenger side going downhill....leaving the car running and the keys, purse, phone...everything inside the car. I would be just across the road. SLAM! went the door. I panicked for a minute. What if the car door locked? It didn't but it gave me a scare. Whiz went two motorcycles past me...a girl's hair flying in the breeze... hanging on for dear life....why don't they wear helmets? I walked across the road and found myself in tall grass scooting down a gully. I got some pictures and scooted back up the incline and over the road to the car. I got in and cars started slowing down...they were looking to see if I needed assistance. Creeping by, I guess they knew it was just a goofy old lady out for a drive and stopping to see something along the way. The picture is posted above. Do you think it was worth it? Looking at it right now...I wonder why I did all of this? I guess you had to see it. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
