A Special Kind of Impressionist Photography by Don O. Thorpe

RURAL ROOTS

When I was a boy on my grandfather's farm in Beaver, I would lay in the dark watching the passing lights of cars reflected off the old pole gate at the top of the hill. I wondered where they were going and if any of them would stop for a while. It was a magical time of hope and expectancy. 
       The gate has long since fallen down, and I now live in a city where the lights are bright and a whirl of activity continually surrounds me. As I sit in my big city house near the sounds of thundering buses and sighing cars, I sometimes think about the old gate and the lights at the top of the hill. 
And  when I'm walking alone with my camera in the sunshine, I can still smell the fresh country dust and see the warm evening glow of yesterday.

 As a photographer and writer with roots in Southern Utah, I have tried to recapture the magic and the tranquil values of my rural past. So where ever I go, I often find myself looking for nostalgic images that are a reflection of those long-ago memories.
