Monday, 5th January 2015 in France - 2014/15.
Long walk in the sunshine up behind the town. Saw a maison for sale – lots of land but the house not too big. Good air under the pines crossing the railway track and walking back anther way. Railway tracks are an obsession . I photograph them wherever I go – cant really explain it but they excite me especially when they disappear round a bend and on. Have pics of tracks everywhere from US to Japan and India. Italy, France and of course the UK.
Note about railway tracks and their appeal to me –suggest travel, newness, freedom from usual stuff – romantic idealism – were we bred to travel to mix to carry ideas, awareness etc – not bto be stuck in one place isolated apart from ‘friends u like’ with same habits, customs etc.
