Something In The Night

Garage, Lüneburg, Germany.
November 2011.

You're born with nothing,
and better off that way
Soon as you've got something,
they send someone to try and take it away

You can ride this road 'till dawn,
without another human being in sight
Just kids wasted on
something in the night

Nothing is forgotten or forgiven
when it's your last time around
I got stuff running 'round my head
that I just can't live down

(Bruce Springsteen - Something In The Night)

Check out these blogs if you're interested in off-road driving and road trips (#1; #2). I have to admit, I love the planning phase of a trip just as much as the actual trip... spending my time looking through those pictures makes me want to get out on the road... any road, really.

The picture goes brilliantly with these words, Dominic.

Like this with those glaring lights, gives it a dangerous feel somehow.

I'm glad both of you like the picture. If I remember correctly, I took that picture around 10 or 11 p.m. - not another human was in sight - I wondered why the lights were still on.

I'm terrible with planning trips. I have to admit, I often co-opt other people's ideas. It is the experience that I prefer, and thinking about it afterwards.

I love this photo! It has such a glaring, sparse look to it. Very mysterious, as if something might happen at any moment.

Dominic Doherty said...

Thank you! What you described in the second paragraph is kind of what I had in mind. :-)

If I left the planning to other people, I'd have no excuse to postpone my trips all the time. ;-)

Yeah... I know! I'm still planning to take part... first, however, I'm gonna fulfill my childhood dream of becoming an archaeologist (well, getting that degree at least), and then my other childhood dream to follow in my grandpa's footsteps and become a mechanic, because that knowledge could be very, very useful if the car breaks down in the middle of nowhere! :-)
