Blessed to have lived here, is what I think sometimes when I look out my back window in the morning. I think to myself as I look at all the wonderful images from around the world from other photographers that I really don’t have to go anyplace. Well that isn’t entirely true but there is so much here to appreciate. I also believe that if were not careful in the near future we may destroy some of that beautiful balance we seem to have come to in this county. We are a city and farm. We are businesses and forest. We are schools and parks. We are neighborhoods along reservoirs, lakes and streams. We are a balance that is getting overpopulated and over developed. Hopefully we have the common sense to say uncle soon.
