Taking you on a tour

tourguide collage 2018It happens often so I’ve learned to keep my camera near me.

While out and about, countless times I’ve come upon a scene that just begs to be captured by my camera. If I go out purposefully looking for something to photograph, I don’t always succeed. More often than not, I just stumble onto a picturesque setting or a particular angle that catches my eye.

And more times than I can count in the past, I didn’t have my camera along. Those shots I missed unfortunately only exist in my memory. I could try to describe them for you, but I find the old adage, “A picture is worth a thousand words” to be oh, so true.

I’m a bit behind in the weekly photo challenges, as last week’s challenge was tour guide.

If someone were to visit the area where I live and I would be his tour guide, what would I show him? I think I could conjure up several ideas. But the one thing that stands out for me is this,  the aspect of this place where I live that I love.

We have four distinct seasons of the year.

So let me be your tour guide and take you on a visit to each season – Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter – in my neck of the woods.

And the collage I’ve fashioned for you above? I just happened to stumble upon those photo opportunities while I was doing something else.

  1. This is delightful. I was raised in Iowa, which is four-seasons country, and I still miss them. We have seasons here in coastal Texas, but they can be subtle. I miss “real” autumn the most, I think — those beautiful colors just can’t be replicated down here.

    I’ve seen you here and there — most recently at montucky’s blog — and decided I needed to come and pay a visit!

    • Welcome, shoreacres! I’m so happy you decided to pay me a visit. I’ve seen you ‘out and about’ in the blogging world as well and I need to visit you too. 🙂 I so agree about autumn – those colors are magnificent and it is my very favorite season of all. Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me know you were here.
