a southern US road trip…

28 Nov

Went on a road trip with an old friend of mine. In two weeks – from the end of october to the beginning of november – we made about 4.300 kilometers, passing through 9 states of the US of A: Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and California.
I’m afraid, I wasn’t able to do very many good pics ’cause the trip was mostly about being on the road – like Kerouac – or like this old wise chinese guy said: the journey is the reward (‘Der Weg ist das Ziel’ in German). And shooting pictures while driving a car is not my favorite thing to do.
However, here are some impressions…
