Love this series.

The boat at the edge of the woods is my favorite. It just strikes me as funny, seems out of place there.

You can be proud of living in your county and enjoy such beautiful sights. I love the light of the sun falling through trees and the exuberant vegetation. The choice of objects like the stool in the yard, the signs and specially the boat (the one I prefer) under the warm light has been great.

I got a kick out of the Texaco sign...Brings back memories (yeah, I'm THAT old)...but all of the photos have a touch of nostalgia.

Again ... same as the series on the bicycle .. I love these kind of images. They are very interesting to me. Maybe because I like to document things in photos. I photographed lots of stuffs when I went to visit my hometown early this year. All that reminded me of my childhood, my parents, my home, etc ... I took the pictures of them. And I know I will appreciate them even more years from now.

These are all envy-producing shots to us city folk but I think the boat pic is my favorite of the set. You really are most fortunate living there.
