Roads Photography – On the Road Again

Technically speaking, a road is nothing but a way or route between two places. However, what a powerful energy roads have, inspiring poets, painters, and photographers since the dawn of the times. The number of songs and paintings, devoted to roads, really impresses. “Open Road” by Bryan Adams, “On the Road Again” by Aerosmith, “Long and Winding Road” by the Beatles are just a few examples to mention here. Photographers also often choose to show roads on their works. Whether it is an old rural earth road or a modern hi-tech highway, a road will always be the symbol of connection, life search, and infinity.

Let’s look at some statistics out there: the length of the USA roadways network exceeds 6.4 million (!) kilometers. For comparison, the distance from Earth to Moon is said to be just 363 104 km. What is even more impressive is the particular feature of the roads, which often work like sponges, witnessing silently and absorbing all the events happening around. That is why roads are tightly connected with the history of a particular region, as well as with people, walking and driving those roads. And that is why, looking at the road photography, you can see much more than expressed by a common technical definition of a road.

With 30 years of life experience behind my shoulders, today I find myself focused mainly around two core values: my family (I am a happy husband and a proud father) and IT in its broadest meaning, including but not limited to hardware and software techniques and innovations. My special interest and true passion is photography. Here I am ready to put my signature under each word, once said by Dorothea Lange: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.” Being a part of Cruzine team, I enjoy instant process of learning as well as sharing my own experience in photography and IT with the readers of this digital magazine.
