The open road.

I didn’t have time to hit the road with my camera, so I hit the archives instead. The following series of photos are from last Febrary holidays in the Cape, South Africa.

We drove down fromJohannesburg in the north to the Cape in the South, through the extrordinary Karoo with its delicious Karoo lamb meat and dry, captivating, almost desert like atmosphere, its heartbeat steady and undisturbed.

…looking into your future, on the long,  empty roads in the Karoo, Cape

  4. Oh! These were all so awesome! That first photo reminds me so much our deserts here in New Mexico. And the Bay is so beautiful! Such a contrast…along with the winelands. And the Knights of the Road. Clever!
