Something happend that day. My mind was racing with huge thoughts and ideas. I dropped a friend off at the airport and in a way, I was being guided.

On my way home I almost got caught in traffic when this perfect moment of opportunity opened up for me to turn around and take the other route. Down the road it was completely overcast, untill this one section (where I knew there was a rest stop) of the sky was clear. I pulled over and walked around a bit.

I was very offended by my fellow man who had littered the area with a nice layer of trash. There were ink released clothing tags all over the place, beer bottles, endless cigarette butts, and other random objects.

I wish people would be more considerate of the world we live in. It's a mad world.

Haunting...beautiful. And your words are so true. This captures a kind of purity, an innocence that you've summed up perfectly in the write-up. The kind of thing the world lacks so much now.

I'm glad some people actually take the time to see things as I do.

at least the world is also littered with photos such as this. if i have to live in this mad world, at least i have ways to look at it that glorify it to the highest degree. polaroids just seem to catch a moment in the perfect way.
