There are the obvious things about a town. The bigger, wider views that you see as you drive through, rushing from home to work.
And then there are the less obvious, smaller details. That is what is captured here. Things you might not see, even if you live here.
Drying vines intertwined along a chain link fence.
Wind blowing through the grasses in the lake.
Ripples in the water.
Birds soaring on the thermals, high in the sky.
A hidden path through the reeds.
Soaking up the last of the warmth of the late autumn sun.
Patterns created by vines on a building.
So next time you're walking around your town, turn your phone off. Take a second (even go ahead and splurge on a whole minute), and take time to look, feel, smell, and hear what's around you. You might be surprised.
