I-15 Vegas to Barstow

Deborah Whytock's avatar Deborah Whytock

My husband is an artist of fine art and murals. His most recent commission lasted approx. six years. During that time, we spent countless hours commuting between Springfield, MO and Yucca Valley, CA. This is a series of photos taken late night en route from Las Vegas, Nevada to Barstow, California, heading home along Interstate 15 between mile markers 265 and 188. Most of these trips we were alone as we took turns going back. However occasionally we were able to travel together. These photos represent a moment in time at the specified mile marker, during one of our few journeys home together from McCarran International Airport. They are a study of the light and color found in the ordinary.
