"test of time" 18 of 30 - fence & hillside, Dunnigan, 1973
photo by Donald Kinney
Jumping forward a few years to my mid-20's... By then I had been drafted and had done my stint in the Army, and now was working for a small company mixing ink. In my spare time and whenever I was feeling rich, I would buy a box of Polaroid sheet film for the 4x5 view camera.
Gasoline was still relatively inexpensive in 1973 allowing me to explore California's vast network of curvy backroads in my beat-up VW Bug.
Any excuse, or no excuse at all, was a good excuse to go exploring. This scene was near Dunnigan in the northern part of California's Central Valley.
