Desolation

I'm in the mood for some desolation.

I've been thinking about doing a photo project centered around the theme of "desolation" for a while now. You know what I'm talking about there. Desolate landscapes, isolated places, oblivion here on earth. That sort of a thing.

I don't know what my strange fascination with this desolation theme really is. I guess it's something I have to explore some more, but it's really making me want to go out into the middle of nowhere, just with me and a cameras (even a film camera, mind you) and shoot, shoot, shoot.

Maybe it's too many insurance forms and model releases and not enough shooting? Maybe I'm just crazy from the heat? Maybe I just want to get away? I don't know about that, but I do know that I want to get desolate. Out in the open somewhere. Isolated a bit. Away from it all.

Do you ever feel like you want to get away from it all? Even for a little bit? Heck, I know I do. And, I'd guess, I'm feeling that way now too. Now, I'm not usually an anti-social kind of a person. I do like company, for the most part. Just every now and again, I don't know, I just feel like I want to get away from it all. Does that make me a bad person? Or maybe just somebody in need of some quiet contemplation once in a while? (I'd like to think the later, and hope it's not the former.)

I've been quiet here too lately, I know that. I'm sorry I have not been posting, and twittering, and facebooking and all of that as much as I usually do. I'll try to get back to doing some of that, I don't know, maybe later on in the week, once I feel like things have settled down a bit. Maybe once I've had some quiet time and some tea to collect my nerves.

Stay tuned. I promise, I have some fun things to tell you about.

Until next time...

These days desolation seems pretty available at many levels.
