Road Trip Ready

 Wall of License Plates

I don’t know about you, but when the weather is rather frightful, I start to think about road trip planning. This doesn’t mean that I want to travel during the cold months of winter, unless the place is a rather warmer climate.

I suppose what I’m getting at is that it is time for and friends and I (or possibly just myself) to think of a place or places that I would love to go to.

If you look at the photo above, there are endless possibilities. Take a look at some the states – Nevada, Iowa, Kansas, California. I’ve been to California and Nevada, but not the other two places. How about you? Where have you vacationed? How many places listed have you been to?

Planning a vacation is fun isn’t it? Once I select the actual place, I tend to order a vacation guide and when I receive it, I leaf through it looking at nearly every page.

As a photographer, I love to gaze at the colorful photos. (I might even critique some of the images too – to myself at least. Next, I will fold the pages that interest me, whether it’s a place to photograph a landscape, or a railroad adventure, or something else. Maybe a hot air balloon excursion. I never been on one of those before.

Of course there is more planning. Where to stay? How much will it cost? How to get there? Plane, train, or auto?

Depending on when the vacation is, each day seems to pass more slowly, but before we know it, the day arrives for us to depart to our long thought out vacation. Let the photo capturing begin!

The photo above was captured during the wonderful photo-cation to Colorado. It’s another image from our trip to Historic Saint Elmo’s Ghost Town. There on a outside wall attached to a tall building were all of these United States license plates.

Clicking on the image will allow you to view the photo in a larger format.
