Artist's Description

IN MY WORLD, THERE’S NOTHING BETTER THAN “CALIFORNIA LIVING”. I’VE TRAVELED ALL ACROSS THE UNITED STATES AND BACK MORE TIMES THAN I CAN REMEMBER. I WAS A LONG HAUL HEAVY EQUIPMENT TRUCK DRIVER. I SAW LOTS OF SUNRISES AND SUNSETS WHILE I WAS DRIVING AMERICA’S HIGHWAYS AND STREETS. BUT, FOR ALL THE DIFFERENT CLIMATE CHANGES THAT I WENT THROUGH FROM DAY TO DAY, I ENJOYED DRIVING FOR A LITTLE WHILE. I MISSED GETTING UP IN THE MORNINGS IN MY OWN BED. MOST OF THE TIME WHEN THE SUN CAME UP, I WAS BEHIND THE STEARING WHEEL. MY CO-DRIVER USUALLY GOT TO SLEEP AT NIGHT, BECAUSE HE WAS THE NUMBER ONE DRIVER AND HE HAD THE SENIORITY. UNFORTUNATELY, I DIDN’T GET TO SLEEP MUCH WHILE HE WAS DRIVING, BECAUSE I DIDN’T TRUST HIM TO KEEP ME OUT OF THE WINDSHIELD WHENEVER HE PUT ON THE BRAKES. WE USUALLY DROVE FOR A PERIOD OF 10 HOURS ON, 10 HOURS OFF. I COULD ONLY SEEM TO GET ABOUT 3 HOURS OF SLEEP IN MY OFF TIME, SO WHEN I GOT BACK BEHIND THE WHEEL, I WAS READY TO PULL OVER A STOP 10 MINUTES INTO MY SHIFT. GETTING INJURED ON THE JOB IN TERRA HAUTE, INDIANA WAS THE BEST THING THAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO ME. AFTER ONE YEAR ON THE JOB OF DRIVING AROUND THE COUNTRY, I WAS BORED OUT OF MY MIND. I DIDN’T TRY TO GET INJURED, IT JUST OCCURRED AND THAT WAS THE END OF MY DRIVING DAYS. THAT IS WHEN I GOT INTO PHOTO LAB WORK, BUT THAT’S ANOTHER STORY, AS THEY SAY. AS I WAS SAYING, WE HAVE SOME BEAUTIFUL SUNRISES AND SUNSETS HERE IN CALIFORNIA AND I’M GLAD I’M HERE EACH DAY TO SEE THEM. THIS SUNRISE WAS TAKEN ON NOVEMBER 12, 2008 FROM MY BACK YARD.
