Don't You Wish You Were Me Today?

"Yeah, I could live there I guess..."
Topsail Beach, NC - July 2009 (Click to embiggen)

Day 1: To the guy in the white Camry: Have ya heard of cruise control? To the woman in the black Chevy Blazer with the vanity plate that says "CHASEGOD": If you have to chase Him, maybe you got the wrong God, huh? And anyway, if you don't quit trying to read that full-sheet highway map at 70 mph, you'll find Him soon enough. Or He'll find you. To the black GMC Arcadia: Could ya pick one lane? Please?

Do any of these people annoy me? Not much. Not today. Not when I know I'm heading for shots like this one. And this is just the first day.

Despite the collection of idiots on I-40 East, despite the Rains of Doom that did verily fall upon the island in copious quantity (turning the main road of the island into a scale model of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway), despite the complete absence of restaurants within a 15 mile radius I am as greedily happy as I have been on any trip in my recent memory. For truly, I have no place I have to be. No meetings, no workshops, no business... just me and my Canon and a target-rich environment. I don't know why I didn't do this a long time ago.

Heartbreaking beautiful...

And I DO see a painting sky even though I know the Rains Of Doom is around you.

I just want to break into this..
But my Evil PC of Doom screams:
"Forget it.. Patitence Bitch!" ;)
