The other day, I was catching up on my photography magazine reading.  One paragraph in particular jumped out at me, something along the lines of :

You don't need to travel to some exotic location to take great photographs - they can be taken in your own back yard!

A true thought, but I felt that it didn't really fit in the article and it's wonderful shots of Penguins, Grizzly Bears, Arctic foxes and so on..... Well I don't see those thing in my backyard anyway.. :)

I do agree with the idea of learning to see the beauty in our everyday lives though. Freeman Patterson,  a photographer whose vision I admire, demonstrated this in several of his books.  I also appreciate the work of Kim Manley Ort as she presents wonderful glimpses of the village of Niagara-on-the-Lake.  I had the privilege of sitting in on one of her morning seminars on seeing, I'd highly recommend it.

Anyway, I thought I'd pull a couple of my backyard pictures... Sorry, no cascading waterfall, buffalo, or models, just a few simple shots.
