This past weekend I traveled to San Angelo and Marfa, Texas for my 40th birthday. I would have gone strait to Marfa but I had previously discovered a few artists in San Angelo that I wanted to meet and photograph. I will be posting about them soon.
My solo birthday roadtrip was really fun and I highly recommend visiting Marfa. It's a really small town, and it's kind of out in the middle of nowhere, but it has a lot going for it. There are also quite a few towns around Marfa that have their own reasons to visit. More about them later. So I was taking a scenic drive east towards Fort Davis on 166, after visiting Valentine, and saw this amazing storm in the distance. The landscape out there is so vast that you can see for miles and miles. When you live in a city its pretty rare to see an entire rain storm, so I was in awe. How could I photograph this properly? Just so happened that there was a rest stop at the bottom of a small hill covered in boulders right as I had that thought. I climbed up above the tree line and had the best seat in the house.
You can see images from my trip and from my life for the last four years on my itakepictureseveryday.com blog.
