I haven't been much in the mood for writing here lately. I've got a lot on my mind. Sometimes that makes for great journal fodder and other times it just leaves me flat. I started digging through some old photos that I have trying to find inspiration and came across these photos from 2002.
A while back ScreminRemo had pics up on his journal of a fire in Arizona. I said that I would post these and never got around to it. So, here they are - finally. The pics are from the Prescott National Forest in Arizona after a fire had swept through there and decimated the forest.
These pictures really didn't capture the feeling that I was hoping to capture. It was very surreal. As I drove through the forest, I felt like I was driving through a nightmare. These pictures capture the blue sky. However, in some areas of the forest it was so dense with charred trees that it felt like I was in black and white land. The air was heavy with the sweet smell that comes from burning green wood. I haven't been back there since my mom moved back to Texas. I wonder how the forest has faired since then.
