Five Photos, Five Stories, #3
Whenever the opportunity to drive a back road presents itself, I take it. I have a habit of snapping shots like this while driving – it’s far more challenging with my DSLR than with my point and shoot. The p&s I can pop out the open sunroof and be confident I will get a decent shot if I just keep shooting, but even if I put all my settings to automatic with the big fancy camera, I sometimes have to stop what I’m doing and shoot. Thankfully, when you have a habit of photographing roads like this, they lend themselves to you stopping in the middle of nowhere to do just that. I took this on my way to one of my favorite strawberry patches last spring – sometimes just getting there and back is the reason I go. There’s just something soothing about driving down roads like this one.
Suzicate at The Water Witch’s Daughter invited me to play Five Photos, Five Stories. I invite Patience at Fatuous Observations to participate. If you wish to play the rules are that you post a picture a day with a story, fiction or non-fiction, or a poem and nominate one fellow blogger a day to participate.

I know the exact strawberry patch of which you speak…love those back roads!
I suspected you’d recognize that road!
You do live in a place where I bet the off-the-beaten-track roads are charming and wonderful to follow.
I am rather fond of them.
