Photography at 70mph: South Carolina, Kentucky, Illinois and Tennesee

Ok, so I’m cheating a little bit. These photos are from earlier this year while on our spring break trip, but I never got them posted. A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being the passenger on a weekend trip to Iowa. Unfortunately I didn’t take my camera. That was a conscious decision. What I hadn’t considered, though, is that I’m never the passenger on that trip and that I’d get to see things I normally don’t. Darn it. So, instead of Iowa trip photos, here are more from The South. It’s really quite charming how many homes have rocking chairs on the porch. I suspect they’re mostly ornamental, but I still loved it.

Life got a little hectic after Spring Break and I had to put these photos aside. When I picked them up again I was excited to see what was there. As it turns out, I really like to watch the landscape when on the road.

Give me land, lots of land…don’t fence me in.

And a special shout out to Cat Lee, who helped me see that The South really does have wonderful character.
