Where I'd Rather Be

U.S. Route 66, Santa Rosa, New Mexico, November 2005

Right about now, it is late afternoon in Southeast Minnesota, yet fog still permeates the air, as raindrops slowly pound the snow and ice still on the ground.  The days lately are like something out of Hobbes's Leviathan: "Solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short."

Yet, looking at this snapshot I took on Agfa's gorgeous Ultra 50 print film, I am taken to an oasis promising not just sun and sand, but lovely lasses with long legs lounging around the swimming pool.
