Someone Mentioned An Alternative To Sex, I Doubted Their Words. It Was Only Love On Offer. New Mexico, USA.

It's been an interesting, enjoyable weekend. I have felt strangely distracted and so went no-where further than the local shop. Jan at work and in bed whilst I explored new places from the comfort of my chair....so much is possible without even having to get dressed....I did...before the emails start flooding in I'm a clean boy and never comment on any of your sites unless fully clothed. I know I am still disturbing you so I'll leave it there.
The sun has been warm I know I should have been out taking photos...but I didn't need that. I was just kind of comfortable where I was. I have a stack of processing to do...that's Photoshop processing I'm too much of a lazy bastard to process my own films. But a stack I do have...so you'll be pleased to know that I did none of it this weekend. I just sat here....looking at pretty things...browsed some sites, had a drink..ate some food, took a few pinholes around the house...had a drink. You seeing a theme here? It's been a good one for lots of reasons

Well, today's post...a first over here at Terrorkitten. A post from our 2002 trip to the states, I tell a lie early on in the blog I think I posted a couple of colour images. But lets pretend that this is the first. I guess we all have an image that we look at and it does it for us...you know we think is our best. Well in my hithero uneventful life this is the shot of mine that I like.
There is a bit of a story to it which drives home the rule I apply now...if you think it might be a good shot for gods sake take it. I can't remember where this was but I am sure it is in the four state region of New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Colorado. You know where they all meet. Anyhow we left out motel and I saw this vision of beauty and mentioned to Jan it might make a good shot...she agreed but I seemed to think we had a schedule and so carried on for 5 minutes when I repeated the same words...she agreed and said yeah you should have taken it...on I drive for another 5. Then spout up again, Jan says you wanna take it go back...nah too far now...5 minutes..hell yes I'll go back. By now we are on a highway with a central crash barrier so I can't bloody turn around. 15 minutes until I find an exit....pretty much a 30 minute drive back. Picture taken.
I don't need to explain the moral of this story I'm sure. I hope you like it.
I'll apologise for the quality of the image, I had to scan a glossy resin print...until I get a decent negative scanner it will have to do.

OK guys the Photoblogawards have kicked in. If you have a mind to vote for people then here is a shortcut there!

I smile when I'm angry.
I cheat and I lie.
I do what I have to do
To get by.
But I know what is wrong.
And I know what is right.
And I'd die for the truth
In my secret life...
