Sunday countryside drives take me to different places in Northern California when I get itchy and bored with the suburb lifestyle. When I find places that speak to me, I return often throughout the year to experience and sometimes record their seasonal changes. It is in the changes that I find excitement for the mysteries of nature and my methodology when photographing/editing psychological aspects of spaces.
These three photos were taken on highway 65 "road to Brooks" featuring Esparta which is a small farmland town where many travelers daily journey through to gamble at a Native American Casino, Cache Creek. It is with mixed feelings that I participate in both the journey and the Brook's destination. I enjoy them both. There actually seems to be a balance between the mysteries of nature and the folly's of the Casino Pilgrimage that exists. Odd as that may seem.
