There is no particular theme or idea here, just a bunch of random images pulled from a string of random places and times. I’m not sure what makes ROY’S so iconic. I just know that it is and that I am lucky to have made that little pilgrimage into the desert.
I think I’ve finally managed to get my new hard drive working after many mistakes and missteps along the way. I’m not sure if I learned anything from the experience. The great thing about photography is that I have all these reminders of just how imperfect I am. As Pete Townshend said, “I can’t pretend there’s any meaning here or in the things I’m saying.” The thing is that photography like music, often fits with the way I’m feeling. The difference is that I am more out of tune than in tune most of the time.
