My last post about the Cadillac Ranch has me yearning for the freedom of the open road once more. To quench the wanderlust that is starting to flood my senses, I have been looking through photos of past travels for shots that embody the spirit of freedom. Of course I began with the open road, this one under the big skies of Montana.
A different type of freedom now, the freedom of expression, represented by this glorious stack of books at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library in New Haven, CT.
To escape the hustle and bustle of New York’s concrete jungle, I would head out to the Far Rockaways where the crashing waves released feel-good ions to soothe my soul and free my spirit.
Last but not least, beautiful wild horses roaming freely on the slopes below Mount Leinster.
