    There are so many things in society that I just don't get along with, and sometimes I wish I could just go live in the wilderness and fend for myself. Ostracize myself from modern society and it's many flaws. But even if I did, civilization will always be enchroaching.

    I'd love to hear any and all comments and criticisms about both the photo and the concept/meaning that I attempted to portray with it.

    Thanks :)

    Oh - that's beautiful!!!

    If you were trying to show that you were enjoying nature as life modern life passed you by and went on, you succeeded. :D

    Thanks Photogoddess :) I was really trying to show that you can't go out and enjoy nature anymore without modern life passing by, but I like your point of view as well :)

    A great photo, Matt. Totally striking a chord in this man who grew up in North Carolina and now resides in Southern California.

    This would be hanging on my wall if I shot it. :)

    I can also relate pretty well to this picture. It does seem there really aren't many places one can go to leave civilization behind for awhile. It's a great picture but the story behind it makes it stand out even more.

    in my opinion it more shows nature and modern life together- one side you have a real nice looknig lake and more nature- and then...a road? that does seem like itr would be a good spot to just relax, except you have a busy road next to you....

    i know what you mean. many times i thought the same and i stil do.

    the photo is great, the character is looking from the busy side of the road at the beautiful nature and wishing to be there.

    great.
