No matter where you live, sometimes the familiar can seem boring and become invisible. The exciting moments are elsewhere, a plane ride away. I happen to live in an area that is a dream destination for many, and I decided to look at it that way. I love where I live. It’s just the right combination of small-town charm and big-city excitement. This is a gallery I hope to keep adding to, as I appreciate the small stories that I can find right in my own back yard.
