Two Days on I-44

For me, there’s no such thing as a typical gig. They’re all different, though some patterns tend to emerge. Mostly there’s a lot of time spent traveling and a little time spent making the photographs.

Here’s how the most recent project unfolded.

I left St. Louis at noon on Sunday. I drove 6.5 hours to Tulsa. I was idle for 14 hours mostly catching up on digital work. The next day, I arrived at the location and produced a 55 minute session. I packed up, shook hands and said my goodbyes then hopped into my reliable SUV and drove home with some stops for coffee, lunch and a power nap.

I can’t think of a better way to spend 32 hours.

Along the way, I tipped my hat to a dozen or so places on this Missouri/Oklahoma corridor where I’ve had similar experiences including this one in Eureka, Missouri at Rotometrics.
