Pit Stop: Nature's Beauty From a Trucker's Point of View

by Sheryl Smith Rodgers

Traffic jams. Rude drivers. Lonely hours behind the wheel. Whenever trucker Jesse Ray Rex needs a break, he pulls over at a truck stop and gets out with his camera to explore. The quiet time eases his mind and energizes him for his next shift on the road. Through his lens, Jesse captures close-up images of wildlife that he finds on his walks. He especially focuses on spiders, snakes and other creepy-crawlers. “Through my photos, I want to help people who fear those critters see their beauty,” he says. “All God’s creatures have a purpose.”
