Road weary

Road-weary and brain-numb, Derek rubbed at his gritty eyes, then rolled down his car window. Maybe the cold air would help keep him awake, he had a long, desolate stretch of highway ahead of him.

He had driven for hours without seeing a single other car. The only light was his headlamps and the waxing crescent moon hanging in the sky like God’s thumbnail pressing down on a hemorrhaging vein. Derek couldn’t leave Springdale fast enough, or go far enough to get away from her.

She was a vampire sucking him dry, not of blood, but of his sanity.

I believe all good fiction includes an element of truth, and all good photography includes an element of fantasy. In this journal I hope to give voice to the stories swirling around in my head, and to capture the images I see through my camera’s lens.
