I took this photo when I went out to Joshua Tree last September, which is one of the most amazing places in California. You drive in, finally get out of the car and then….silence. The kind of silence you just don’t ever get, living in the ‘burbs. It’s a silence that makes your ears ring! It’s amazing there, and I hope to go back sometime this fall. This photo reminds me of that sense of peace, the warm afternoon sun and listening to Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros for the first time.
