Maybe I'm just no good at city slicking but lately I've been pretty besotted by the notion of freedom. Every spare moment is spent cramming my senses with as much nomadic music, poetry and film as I can get my greedy paws on. Despite my initial eagerness to nest I knew it wouldn't take long before the desire to be back on the open road was rekindled. To me, there will never be anything sweeter then rising with the morning birds to an unfamiliar landscape, uncertain of what town or state I'll be calling home for the night.

This is a collection of my very favourite photographs taken in America. Some places you may recognise, some you may not, but I think this set as a whole does a darn good job of depicting that sense of freedom I'm hankering for...

  1. Beautiful! I can very much identify with your need for the open road. I grew up traveling; I had 17 houses before I was 16 years old. Every year it was a new house, a new view, and a new state. We bounced back and forth from coast to coast. But now I've lived in the same place for 6 years and I think I'm slowly going mad with nostalgia.

  2. My partner and I have been talking about going on a great American roadtrip in a year or so and looking through your photos has got me really excited and determined to make it happen :)

  3. Oh my god. That photo of Yosemite is absolutely insane. You don't happen to have a high-res version of it, do you? I would love for it to be my desktop background at work to distract me from city livin'.

  8. Just gorgeous! I totally feel the need to roam around. It's funny though, as I'm away from "home" at the moment, but I long for the freedom I had back there, long drives back to my parents, outside fires, generally being able to get away from people. We are in Korea now, see, and, I joke not, there are people most everywhere.

  10. So, so beautiful and inspiring. I've been to maybe a third of these places, and the rest are all pretty much on my list to visit. I'm jealous I've lived here for 26 years and still haven't seen it all. Such lovely photos.
