Someday I’m gonna get myself killed taking a photograph from a spot like this, but I just can’t resist shooting down a long stretch of winding road. Those converging lines are mesmerizing and just seem to grab me by the arm and drag me out of my car and into the middle of the road.
It’s also fun to see the look on Jack’s face when I ask him to “watch my back for any large trucks coming around the corner”. I can almost hear his thoughts. “Oh shoot! I should have gotten the car keys from him before he set up that stupid tripod. Gonna be a damn long walk back to the hotel.”
