I Want to Go Back

Yes, I know it's been a while... life got in the way. Hopefully, I can make time to keep up with this blog again.

I just got back Tuesday from my annual trip to southern Mississippi. I took a couple extra days going down as well as coming home to do some exploring, photos of which I am slowly uploading to Flickr, such as this abandoned bridge over Hudson Creek along US 71 north of Pineville, LA

 

I even found an old Cities Service gas cottage in Winona, MS

I found lots of bridges along US 90 between New Orleans & Lafayette before I ran out of time such as this bridge over Bayou Des Allemands:

 

I missed so many bridges that I want to go back and see them all. Right now, though, I don't have the time. I wish I did. There is so much anger, hatred & backstabbing in the world these days that I wish I could get away from it all and simply go for a drive and take photos. When I'm on the road, little else matters...I'm simply living in the moment. I weary of all the "talking heads" trying to tell me how to think, how to act. I just want to be left alone. Just me and the roads.
