Enjoying a Perfect Spring Day on a Road Trip Through Easton

Monday, May 15, 2017

Rain, rain, go away....I hate to be a complainer but really....I'm looking foward to the sunny days that have been promised for the rest of the week.  We did take advantage of one beautiful day last week and took a ride to the country.  One thing I love about living in the Northeast where we experience four seasons is that we get to enjoy (and photograph) our favorite places in different seasons and backdrops. Surprisingly, as many posts as I've written about Easton, NY, we'd never actually toured during spring or summer so we've been looking forward to checking out the view covered in spring blossoms and shades of green.  I can say we were not disappointed.  A beautiful view is a beautiful view in any season and as you'll see, that's true of Easton.
I always say that photography helps me to 'see' the world with new eyes, a sort of magnified vision. It also helps me to see things I'd probably not notice were I not looking for photo ops.  Like this photo...
I don't know why, but this scene just screamed to me to be captured.  Were I not traveling for the purpose of capturing images, I'd probably not have even noticed it.  That's what blogging does for me.  It gives me inspiration to notice the world around me and share that world with all of you.  Life today is so busy, so full of commitments, that unless we make time to, we just go from one task, one commitment to another without taking time to enjoy the world around us.  Luckily I take enough time enjoying it to make up for most of us ;) and I'm going to share it with you - one road trip at a time!

 My favorite is still standing....
 A very special friend and the Visitation Minister from my church, Brother Paul, sketched this masterpiece for me recently.  Talk about talent!!  Thanks to him, my favorite Easton building will now stand forever - at least on my wall.

Cow and cowbirds!

There's something so peaceful, so calming about a ride through this countryside.  Maybe it's the view for miles, the untouched, unspoiled land for miles, or perhaps it's the quiet of the country but I could spend a million afternoons riding these back roads.  I know progress must be made and cities must exist but I hope I don't live long enough to see the view here any different than it is today!  Thanks for coming along for another ride through Life As I See It in the beautiful Easton, NY.  If you're interested in comparing any of these shots with their winter counterparts, use the links provided below.

Shhh....I don't want to say it too loud, but I believe I see the sun shining.
