Through The Lens: On The Road by Jack Kerouac

Welcome to our weekly meme, Through The Lens! We’re combining a love of books with photography in order to visually display what we read and love.

How It Works

Each Thursday BA will be sharing a photograph taken of a book, such as a current read, recommendation, or a favourite, with an object or in a setting the reader feels represents an element in the story. Then we’ll share a short blurb about why we chose it.

You Can Join In Too

If you want to participate you can. You don’t have to be an expert photographer, the point of this meme is to be creative and share! Take your book, including eBooks, and display those covers with something that shows what you took away from the story. You’re welcome to post another day, we just like alliteration here at BA, and there is no theme unless you want to have one.

We do ask, if you wish to join in, that you grab the banner, link back to us, and share your link too so everyone can see your photos!

This Week

On The Road by Jack Kerouac – This is one of those books that changed my life. If you really want a broken down description it’s about a group of people who travel around America. If you want to know what it’s really about, it’s about being spontaneous, doing what makes you happy, taking risks, and living for the moment. I read this book at a time in my life when I needed a change, I felt I was stuck and this helped me realise I can do something risky and whether it works out or not, it’s about the experience, about screwing up but taking everything that comes with that.
