Day 290 – They Call Me the Breeze


They Call Me the Breeze

Day 290

Call Me The Breeze by J.J. Cale
Call me the breeze
I keep blowin’ down the road
Well now, they call me the breeze
I keep blowin’ down the road
I ain’t got me nobody
I don’t carry me no load
Ain’t no change in the weather
Ain’t no changes in me
Well, there ain’t no change in the weather
Ain’t no changes in me
And I ain’t hidin’ from nobody
Nobody’s hidin’ from me
Oh, that’s the way its supposed to be
Well, I got that green light, baby
I got to keep movin’ on
Well, I got that green light, baby
I got to keep movin’ on
Well, I might go out to California
Might go down to Georgia, I don’t know
Well, I dig you Georgia peaches
Makes me feel right at home
Well now, I dig you Georgia peaches
Makes me feel right at home
But I don’t love me no one woman
So I can’t stay in Georgia long
Well now, they call me the breeze
I keep blowin’ down the road
Well now, they call me the breeze
I keep blowin’ down the road
I ain’t got me nobody
I don’t carry me no load
Ooh, Mr. Breeze

I really have been taking my photos….
I just have no time to get them posted as I work my way slowly through
the wedding photos that I must get edited! So here, at least, is one
day’s worth of photos. Sigh… You know, the hurrier I go, the
behinder I get.
The windmills pictured run along a 30 mile stretch of US 30 in Ohio.
They start right at the border between Indiana and Ohio and go on and
on and on. I think they are quite eerie looking, so large and silent
and I mused, as we drove along this trail of windmills, that if
Stephen King were to drive along this stretch of road, these windmills
just might find a place in one of his stories along with Middle Town,
a little burg we found while in search of some bottled water and maybe
a restroom. The locals are not impressed with the windmills as they
feel that they detract from the ambiance of the flat, flat, flat fields
that surround them.

  1. Love these photos; I love the angle in the last one, and how the mill gets kind of hiden in the branches.
    We know you’ve been taking the photos and understand that some times 24 hours a day are not enough.

    My trips went pretty well Cyndi, seeing my friend was amazing 🙂

  2. The hurrier you go – sounds like wind doesn’t it? Love the final shot. As if it’s helping scatter those wispy clouds in that brilliant blue.

    • To be honest, I am not well pleased with the photos I have taken – I didn’t really have time to plan the event correctly and it was just too impromptu – I am afraid that I am a bit “anal” about pre-planning wedding shots with the couple and there just was no time to do any of it and as a result, I was ‘off my game.’ I am hoping that the secondary photographer got something usable as she took well over 1200 photos (!!!) – I am not envying her for the time she is going to have to spend sorting!

  3. Lovely pictures of the wind turbines and the sky, locals don’t seem to like them wherever they’re put, maybe if I was a local I might think differently but for now I think they look like graceful standing flowers. 🙂

  4. Silly locals: the very contrast of these sleek white sails in their towering punctuation of the landscape brings into high relief the beauty and ruggedness and *flatness* of the plains.

  5. These are great photos, Cyndi, and I really enjoyed the poem you picked to go with them. I’ll have to check them out next time we’re out that way (could be a while since we’re on the other side of the state).

  6. Great series and agree with everyone regarding the fantastic sky. For some reason, I haven’t been getting notifications on your new post all though I’m signed up. I’ve been missing some great stuff. I just reset it, and hopefully it works.

    • Why are you not a fan, if I may ask? I suppose they are more “attractive” to those of us who don’t have to live surrounded by them – but to be honest, they add interest to the flat, flat and more flat landscape of Ohio!

      • Because our government is pushing them as “green energy” and… they aren’t. They need hydro from a different (coal/nuclear) source – they don’t produce their own power. They only run when it’s windy.. and when we need hydro the most – in the heat of the summer – there’s rarely wind, and they stand there. When it’s really windy, they don’t work… instead, brakes come on so that they don’t spin.

        They have been forced on us, without our ability to find out more about them, the best setback from houses, whether the “whump, whump” they emit are causing health problems – forcing people from their homes, and they are swallowing up all the good farmland here. We have beautiful landscape here beside Lake Huron… and they spoil it.

        Some people in our township are fighting more being put in right now… if they lose, four will surround my house. 😦

      • That makes sense to me now, Adeena. I probably would hate them as much as you do for those reasons and to have no choice in the matter would really have me incensed. I do know that they have put some of these into Lake Michigan and they can be seen from the shoreline – the locals hate them too, but with them, that is no surprise because I don’t particularly like them messing with the horizon on the waters.
        I wonder, with the extremely flat land these ones I have pictured reside on, if tornadoes are a factor at all?
