Digital Photograph - Small Town America



One of the best parts of traveling this year has been being able to take the backroads. I have seen so much of this country - the real, everyday people that make up this country. Where they work and live. It has been a pleasure and at times disturbing. I wish all those politicians could take a week off and take a little trip with me. They would definitely have a better understanding of what is really happening out there in the world they govern. Meanwhile I am so honored to be an American and to be able to explore and meet all of these interesting people.[remember to double click on picture to see it enlarged]

How fortunate you have been to be able to travel the back roads and explore so many places! Have you read any of William Least Heat Moon's books of traveling the back roads?

What a fabulous journey you've experienced this past year, Elizabeth! We ARE blessed to live in this beautiful country. You've captured so many special bits of Americana -- all disappearing so quickly now. This is yet another great capture of 'anywhere USA'. Thanks for letting me come along. Hugs, Terri xoxo

I so agree with your thoughts, Elizabeth. When I worked, it was a high-pressure, big-city traveling sort of job and I SO loved it when I could visit the rural part of Illinois that was my home. It was my touchstone, my reminder of the things in life that truly matter. I have so enjoyed your backroad meandering!!

Elizabeth, You have such an amazing eye for capturing the essence of small town and rural America. What a fantastic book your photos and commentary would make!
