sleeping corn fields

Sleeping cornfields in the heart of America, January 2012. I made many long walks along the country roads with my camera as only company. Since I was the only walker in the neighbourhood, my walks were noticed and I was asked why and where I walked and felt like that crazy Swede when I tried to explain that I walk because it keeps me healthy and sane.

    Walking shouldn’t need an explanation, but sometimes just walking (instead of driving or riding in a car) makes a person seem strange or down on their luck or out of place here. Great photos.

      Thank you! It is another culture there. Ppl in Sweden drive a lot, but it’s still common – regardless of social/economic class to walk and bike. We have dedicated, paved walk/bike roads – wholly separated from car roads – here which make it easy to get around – that is one of the things I missed most when I lived over there. The upside of the US culture is that I was offered a ride (by nice, middle class soccer moms – not slime balls). They seemed a bit calmed when I explained that I was a car owner with my own car, though. ;)
