Each time I find a new location that I want to photograph I find myself returning more than once. First trip, finding out what you’re interested in. Thinking about lighting, where you want to shoot, etc. Second trip, really getting into what you want to shoot.
So today, like last Sunday, I found myself driving to Winslow Arizona. And no, I didn’t get a picture of myself standing on a corner. But I did stand on several corners to be sure! A few photos were found there, but more photos were found at burnt out gas stations along the way. Go figure.
Josh came along today. We were hoping for some heavy clouds in Winslow, and access to some of the more run down buildings. However, the clouds stayed at bay in Winslow. They hovered closer to Flagstaff, closer to old highway stops we’d passed on the way to Winslow. After a little over an hour shooting in town we decided to head back to some abandoned skeletons of businesses along our path. The clouds were there, totally burned out buildings wide open to our inspection, and more that we thought we’d want to shoot.
I don’t have to much further to say tonight regarding the trip. I’ve slightly sorted through pictures, and I’ll get into more sorting in the morning. Then I’ll tell you about our “finds” along the way.
