BETWIXT AND BETWEEN

 

Somewhere between the west and south

 

Somewhere in between time zones

Between getting somewhere and being nowhere

Between total strangers, travel acquaintances and friends

 

Between grids, roadhouses, servos, lookouts and one street towns

 

Kilometres pass, questionable meals are eaten, Phil Collins CDs and endless ice creams and postcards are purchased, road trains are overtaken, mate waves are reciprocated

But betwixt and between time and space passing

 

Nothing much happens

Other than the road bending, the sun setting and the wind picking up again

I originally wrote this little guy and took these snaps while on the road last year, driving over 5,000 kilometres from Schmoebs to Canberra via the Nullarbor as part of this lovely project. For the last two weeks I’ve been mainly on the road again, this time driving from Melbourne to Alice Springs, different car, different destination, different company, different caravan – but similar betwixt vibes.

  1. I totally get this – your images are gorgeous, and the timelessness of travel is captured perfectly. Spent 3 months up north a while ago and your words took me right back there…
