Last week while navigating through the more rural areas of Metro Detroit during a solo work trip (photographing homes for appraisals), I headed out to Oakland Charter Twp, Michigan for a quick minute. “Where the pavement ends, life begins,” or so I like to say… something like that. As a kid, I couldn’t stand gravel roads. Most of the dirt roads I’ve been down are hellish and unmaintained. Sometimes, though, I come across a few that are smoother than a lot of paved (asphalt or concrete) roads. Anyway, after snapping a few exterior shots of the house I headed home in the opposite direction, to find myself stretching a long and lonely wooded gravel road. I thought to myself, “I could live here.” With a little point & shoot in my lap I figured I’d test some of its video capabilities and shot for around 5 minutes straight. Now, of course I could’ve, and probably should’ve, gotten more footage of foliage and trees or something else. I didn’t think of it.
Note that some of the footage is sped up—I’m sure some of you realized that but ya neva neva know. 😉 I listen to a lot of classic rock on the road (mainly 94.7 WCSX and 106.7 The D). To the guy Chris from Macomb …smile, you’re famous!
