Today's post is a simple shot. I did it with a telephoto lens to accentuate the hills that are present on this stretch of old Highway 66. The picture was taken just west of Springfield looking back east toward town. As I look at this picture I am drawn into it, wanting to climb into my car and start driving.
I want to explore and see new things. I wonder sometimes if that is the nature of most Americans. We are a nation of those who dared to take out and start exploring, many making long journeys from elsewhere on the globe to get here. A nation of those who strove to make a new and better life for themselves and others.
I thought this may be an appropriate post for a Friday. The day many of you will hop into your car, jump a plane and go somewhere. Good travels and have a good weekend.
