Cheers to the weekend… I think for the first time since I served in the military this past weekend really felt as if I was a weekend warrior. You know the kind of person who works Monday through Friday and Saturday/Sunday are meant for doing things that you find value in other than your job or anything else you may or may not be doing during the week. The weekend seems to lend you the ability to do more, more of what you love, more of what you have a passion for. Cheers to the weekend…
It was south of Tucson for the exploration this weekend. I had extremely loosely planned a weekend in Patagonia Arizona. I honestly just wanted to get away from noise, and signal from most of the world, while explore the southern border and find a place to camp for the future. I didn’t really think of how many photos I was going to take (in hindsight I wish I had taken much much more.) Or even what I would find. My vision of Patagonia was something vast and somber, but Patagonia was true to be vast, but quite the opposite of somber but radiant. To the case that I found the serenity, beauty, and openness of the area to be extremely appealing. I felt as if I vibrated alongside everything that surrounded me. Maybe this was the unconscious relation to where I’m from in Kentucky. The ultimate small town vibe as they might call it today. It seemed glorious in every fashion, and I got to spend my time there with someone I cherish and love very much. I’ve been super inspired by this weekend getaway. Coming back into the real world seems dreamlike, but my arms are open for life.
Like I mentioned I wish I had took more photos…Alicia and I did shoot a few looks in the landscape of Patagonia but I’ll release those at a later date. These photos were took with my Fujifilm X100, a camera that I love to shoot with but quite frankly it gets on my damn nerves. It shoots like a 35mm rangefinder and it is so slow at focusing and taking the photo that it wills me to slow down and get a decent shot. Alicia thought it would be great to take some photos of me in the shower(she was just playing around) but I really liked the photos so I added a couple by her. The rest are just a few favorites upon some that I took.
Hope you Enjoyed reading this and Enjoy these photos :)
