We all want to escape sometimes don’t we? Do you have moments to want to run away into the middle of nowhere and go on an adventure, with no consideration of reality or responsibility. I have this feeling everyday, and this manifests into constant day dreaming and changing reality to suit my fantasy (mainly based around Narnia). But a road trip, an adventure to an unvisited place is a physical realisation of the alternate reality i’m living in. I went with my good friend Viv on an adventure to Bathurst which is about 2 hours from where we live. We go on many photo taking adventures, usually to the same place, so venturing somewhere we havnt been before was really exciting!
It was also a chance to test out my new camera! I’ve moved into the digital world with my new Nikon D3100 DSLR. Not that I won’t be using my film camera’s anymore, but the immediacy of a digital camera is so convenient.
In all it was a very successful adventure which involved dining at the Acropole, a restaurant that claimed to have the best coffee in town, as well as visiting a begonia green house which was such a visual treat with the many colours and textures. However we did think that they were fake on first arrival.
The best feeling was driving in the country side where there are just empty fields and long mountain ranges stretching across the winding roads. With the windows down and the cold air rushing through, we felt very free indeed.
