Fine - I love that sharp turn in the preordained way...

There's a long road to paradise, they say, but I'm not sure.... I mean that it will be a paradise somewhere.

Carl said...

This is a real change of pace, but one I like. The picture is so open and relaxed...if that makes any sense.

Markus, Carl - somehow even while taking a photo I think: this is a MarkusPhoto, this is a CarlPhoto ... like with this one. :-)

Markus, imagine during tourist season caravan after caravan crawling up and down this road.

ana barata, that was definitely no paradise for me there - I am not so keen on gorges, ie. canyons, and long serpentines :-S.

Carl, that's interesting, I never thought of my blog, the postings of having any pace/rhythm - to me it is more a "still trying to find a personal style" thing with much heterogeneous stuff. Open and relaxed - that I is what I tried to be with some steep slopes going hundreds of meters down to the Ardeche next to me ;-)

In reality I took a photo of this guy and then turned around - like you always should turn around and take another photo ;-)

*wonders what's around the curve...*

Two-lane highways in black & white remind me of Robert Frank.

Martina said...

kobico, around the curve there was ... another curve ... :-)

Ah, I own The Americans and I have seen some of his photos at the Tate Modern. (First Tate, then the book ;-))

I'm visitng again to see if the nasty network gremlin gets me.

Martina said...

Joan Elizabeth, I have an idea --- the only thing that I don't have under control is the blogroll. I thought about making an experiment: show all of the feeds in the blogroll and see if you can access the blog. And show only the titles (no snippets no photos) and see if you can access the blog. I don't feel good about bringing down the most important part of the Australian internet. ;-)
Perhaps we can email when to do this. If you are interested of course.
