Running down a dream

Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads
Runnin’ down a dream
I rolled on as the sky grew dark

  2. “Overcome me bitter sweetness / Put me under a magic spell / Overcome me all my sadness / Lead me on and wish me well / There’s no reason to cry / There’s no reason to cry / It’s alright” (Tom Petty)

    Running, chasing, never resting & just going wherever it leads. And I just imaging me as an old man in some old car down on a some old road together with an old friend! I don’t know yet if the dreams I’m chasing will ever be found. But I do know that they were always worth the chase. Feeling the wind in my face, listening to the song, looking at the pictures & start running again!

    All it takes in one brilliant frame, man. Great!

    All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

    • Yeah Fritsch, I suppose the satisfaction’s all in the chase, there’s no end result, not really. Which is fine by me…It’s all in the music, in, like you said, feeling the wind in your face.

      Enjoy the chase! And the tunes, of course.

    • Yeah, this one seriously reminded of a bygone age, and I found myself contemplating all the road’s this old van has seen. Thanks Meanderer.

  4. Like the words and the picture, especially “I rolled on as the sky grew dark”, that really gets to me >>> you’re starting to get heavy, my friend, and it works well! Adrian

    • Yep, going through a bit of a heavy period in my life, so I guess it’s only natural that it would be reflected in my photography, that it would colour my world, so to speak.

      Thanks Adrian, and cheers for the encouragement.

      • Sorry to here about the heavy period – take care, my friend. Adrian
