Returning Home

After three and a half days with Mom, I drove back home on November 21. I started to take the direct route out of Arkansas, but then decided to detour some, and ended up taking the same route through the wilds of Eastern Oklahoma.By this point in the trip, I was honestly weary of shooting. I had a bit of a crisis of vision: I shot fall color like a madman for two days, and then started looking for something else, but couldn’t see anything and had to struggle to even lift the camera to my eye.

So I rocked out of Eureka early on Monday, down 23, 12, 45, 412, a sneaky backroad that I won’t mention because I don’t want it to become heavily travelled and heavily signaled like the other roads through Fayetteville, 49, and then a detour through Devil’s Den State Park down 170 and 74, back to 49, to 40, 540, and then the reverse of my trip up: 271, 1, 2, 3, 271, 86, 121, 75, etc. back home.

I had a great time hanging out with Mom, and shooting. In the future, if I’m going to go on a shooting trip, I need to start with a list of shots or locations, and work to capture those, rather than carrying a camera everywhere and hoping to get something good.


A couple of days after I returned, Mom came down for Thanksgiving. I would share this in a separate post, but the shooting weariness was still on me, and I didn’t get much.

One thing to note: these last three were shot on Fuji Superia X-TRA 800… remarkable sharpness, good color, easy processing… Alhamdulillah.
