This is a cross-posting to a set of images I placed on Flickr today - and linked via Flickr:
[clickable version was not working on blogger]
On July 29, 2011, we drove 626 miles [1005 Kilometers] from our home in Lawrence, Kansas to Estes Park, Colorado. This set is a selection from the 450 photographs I made from the back seat of the car. This started as a test of a new telephoto lens, but very soon it became clear that what I could see from the road was intimately connected to many current concerns and themes, including:
Cattle and Meat Industries
The Family Farm
Thanks to Larry Stark for inspiration: http://www.larrystark.com/
The photographs have been reduced by about 1/3 of their original size. All were shot through tinted glass at 75 mph so I share them for their content, not their quality.
