I'm afraid to admit it but I think like many New Yorkers, I haven't even been to the Statue of Liberty which is only 20 miles from me.
Now I live next to a park literally in my backyard. I walked out this morning for a brisk walk, to find some pine cones and take in the beauty of fall. Although I didn't find not one pine tree and I kept tripping because I was falling in love with the sights surrounding me. I used to think scenic pics were a waste of film if a person wasn't in it. How wrong was I! Taking pics of vacation spots are always nice but I come to appreciate what I have right in my backyard.
What's in your backyard?
