The South West Continued

Now since I’m on the subject of the south west, I figured there would be no better time to resurrect the volumes of images I have shot there.  I’m about as non-mysical as they come but I can’t deny the spirituality you experience when you are there.  Some people go for the clean air, some are on the lamb or in the witness protection program.  Some people think they can find something that Georgia O’Keefe missed.  Generally I find a lot of disenfranchised people who just always had problems playing with the other children and when you hit the urban centers like Canyon Road in Santa Fe, you find a lot of landscape artists from New York who either couldn’t cut it, or wisely decided not to give  a shit.  But when you get away from the people, there is something there that brings peace and sometimes, answers to your problems, but you have to listen very carefully as the spirits speak very softly.  (Thank you Gill Scott Heron)  Dante’s peak in Death Valley always does it for me, but the last time I was there I found 2 German tourists who got there before me at 4:45 AM.
