 bright and strong

 built one upon the other as time ticks away against the wide sky

in a special wide and open place . west of where I am

I love the way nature overtakes man-made structures. A subtle reminder that we are, after all, nature's product. I hope more people can understand that.

The calm stretch of water in a special wide and open place is my favourite. I would like to sit beside that for a while.

I love old buildings. A drawback of where I live is that it's only been inhabited for 150 years at best, not a lot of history!
