Photography is such a personal thing for me – it’s really taken over. There’s just something about it that’s satisfying and calming. I actually try to avoid taking anybody with me when I’m photographing because I know it must be painfully boring for anybody who’s with me. I could explore a scene for hours and still not feel like I’ve explored all of it.
Wall Drug Store in Wall, South Dakota. If you’ve never been, put it on your list (at least if you’re anywhere near). It’s one of those places that you have to visit multiple times because you WILL miss stuff. It’s a treasure trove for kids, families, travelers and people who just like the unique. There’s stuff tucked everywhere – it’s amazing they fit that much stuff in one place. As we drove across South Dakota (and even when we were in Minnesota), we drove past all sorts of marketing billboards. It’s very similar to all the hype about and marketing for South of The Border as your travel into South Carolina from the north. But Wall Drug has that unique western flair to it. We loved it.
