Going Home

20131005-191331.jpg
When I was growing up, I lived in a very small town and I couldn’t wait to get out of it. 18 couldn’t come soon enough. But after I left I noticed something that I never had before. My hometown is beautiful. I suppose it took some miles between us to notice little things like that.

My family always liked to take “the scenic route” everywhere and I never understood why. I do now. Because cities aren’t scenic, they are man made and unfriendly, whereas the country is natural and inviting.

Did I mention I get the best sleep of my life there? I think it’s bc it is so dark (I can actually see stars). Glorious!

  1. So true Megan. I live in the country and the night sky was so clear last night. So many stars. Venus setting at dusk and other planets rising as the night went on. Fantastic !! Happy Sunday my friend. Ralph xox πŸ˜€

  2. What a brilliant photo – somebody has said as a serious photograph we should never take photos of flowers or rail track – but I think there is something very special about rail tracks – where will they take us .. and what is behind the next bend or in the end of the tunnel.
    Welcome home! Enjoy your stay.

    • I agree with you. I think there is something mysterious about them, and i like it. The location i took this picture at is a very small town outside of my hometown. The area is gorgeous and, like you said, you don’t really know where those tracks take you. It looks like they are going to take you to an amazing place deep in the woods. It makes me happy.

      I never follow the rules of photography anyway…

      Thank you Viveka! Much appreciated! My weekend at home was wonderful πŸ™‚

      • I’m with you … glad that you had a great time at home – so important to go back to the roots now and then.

        I don’t follow the rules neither … but sometime I can be come bored with flower photos .. need something less pretty to put the camera against.

  3. My town isn’t super small but we have so many cranberry bogs around us. There is no better place to star gaze than the middle of a cranberry bog!

    • Aww that is sad. I hope you appreciated it while you were able to. Trips to the country are always an option though!
