GOOD FENCES

This photo was taken last year in North Dakota.  We were visiting family on the old homestead, a very loving father and his young son (son-in-law and grandson of one of Gregg's cousins) taking a ride.  You can see them on the horizon.  At the time my focus was entirely on the riders, a very special sight indeed.  On revisiting this photo recently and once again enjoying the scene, I then saw the fence and thought it would be a good share for today

  5. Your header photo has a certain English feel to it. But today's photo is pure Americana - how very apt for your blog.
