Photography 101: Home

The first assignment in Word Press’s Blogging University’s course Photography 101 is to post a picture that suggests home.  Home means many things of course, including the house we live in, and the people we live with.  I am focusing here, though, on the landscape that suggests home to me.  I have always lived in Wisconsin and Minnesota, where the landscape is sometimes flat, but often gently rolling.  I am used to four distinct seasons (with one being especially long), and I am used to water: thousands of lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams.

This is home.
