Thursday Theme - WIDE Open Space





This week's theme is "wide" so I remembered these pictures from our trip to South Dakota last year. They're a couple of my favorites. Harrison and I went walking in our family's "back yard". It opens to the South Dakota prairie - even in this stark late Fall moment I find it beautiful; it's a season we don't get to fully experience in Southern California. I love the wide open space, it's so peaceful and quiet. Something I miss living in the "city". I guess that's why we enjoy the ocean so much. It's big, wide and peaceful and when you are facing the ocean all the hustle, bustle a craziness of life is behind you - if only for a while.

Here are a couple more shots from that day, you can also go visit Picture This and see how other people interpret "Wide".





And only a couple days later, the snow has melted, the weather has changed and Harrison is out in the year driving a back-hoe with his "Grandpa Bingo".
