Urban Landscape

As you know...I love nature. If I had my druthers, I would live on acres and acres and grow all my own food and have cows, goats, chickens, horses, etc. I find much beauty and solace in nature and peace and quiet. Bird song and insect song is beautiful music to my ears.

Of course, that is not my life. I live in suburbia, close to the big city and close to nature. It is actually a perfect place to live, I get the best of both worlds. I also try to see beauty everywhere. I have been known to pull over when driving when something pleases my eye.

I don't have a great camera, just a point and shoot device....someday I would LOVE a nice camera - are you listening Santa??

On our trip to the big City to see Wicked- the most wonderful musical - I decided to bring the camera and find beauty in our urban landscape. This is what we saw...some of the pictures were taken by me and some were taken by Cassie. Every one of these photos speaks to me in a different way.....Enjoy.

Beauty can be found is all a matter of perspective.

You take good pictures :) It's all about composition. I love black and white for that reason - you only see composition in them without the distraction of color. However the pictures of your wildflowers and nature wouldn't be nearly so powerful without the beautiful colors. See how fickle I am? :D

Ok, I have a confession - the reason I always put "anonymous" on my responses is because I don't know what identity I'm sposed to pick :D - I figure it seems pretty stupid to put anonymous then sign my name, but there you are! I'm a computer idiot! LOL

Although I love living in the country - I also love the city and think there is wonderful beauty there...architecture, textures of the rocks, bricks, different lines. I think you captured it well.

Happy Easter!
