I do not live in a thriving metropolis (i.e. New York City, Atlanta), but I do live in a wonderful southern city, Chattanooga. I grew up in the middle of many acres of beautiful farm land, but have spent the last few decades in various charming neighborhoods. So, when I go home and see this much open space it is quite breath taking. The layers of color I see every day are generally obstructed with buildings, houses, telephone poles and billboards, but the layers of color you see on the farm are all free from man made obstructions. It is beautiful. Never take for granted the beauty of nature.
