Into the Unknown

Enigmatic Path, Shadows and light intertwine, Past and present merge. —JanetHaiku #5 Which Way Photo Challenge: January 31 I found several old road trip photographs while (still) sifting through my archives. I believe this one was taken in Utah. My boyfriend (at the time) wasn’t one to make pit stops, so my head was hanging […]

The Blues

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Anything Related to Music I thought it would be fun to take part in another photo challenge, and ‘anything related to music’ sounded like a great theme for an old Memphis road trip photo.
