This is just here in all these other photos, because it was VERY instrumental in my decision of wanting to pursue photography. I had been out in the west desert of ut. cruising down an very old, well traveled road. When I started thinking about how my father had been taking us out here since I was small enough to walk. I learned how to drive for the first time out here, build a fire, hunt, and ride motorcycles with my brothers and sisters.
This was taken as I thought to myself, I HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MUCH GRASS OUT HERE!
The amount of grass blowing in the wind was just astounding, as I had never ever seen it this high or this golden anywhere in the desert. It was lining the road for miles!If I remember correctly this was back in 2009? I'm not certain, I do know it was May, we had a TON OF moisture in the spring.
Maybe we did have grass like this when I was a kid out there riding motorcycles, maybe its just something I missed back then, I was too busy with the world 3 feet around me, and running around as fast as I could.
Now it was time to slow down, and record what passes me by, Because trust me, if you think that you are passing by it.. its not. Time is what is in motion, not us. What this image amounts to is just a split second of time you are seeing, not the beautiful rolling hills or the golden sunset out here.
Here is a little piece of earthly amazement in low res glory from a $50 camera.
So, stay close.. because its been years and thousands of images since then. If youre just now seeing them take a few minutes and explore the rest of my images.
