The Photo Gallery 237: Where I Live

I think this photograph pretty much sums up where I live.
Just a five minute walk or drive in any direction and you come across beautiful countryside. Wild flowers, butterflies, bees going about their daily duties.
I’m not a city dweller. I’m just not. I can feel myself physically and mentally relax once I’m amongst trees. I find the scent of a forest intoxicating.
And now I sound like some weird hippy.

I like living in the centre of England; feels a bit zen 🙂

This post is for week 237 of The Photo Gallery. The theme is: Where I Live (sorry I got a bit ranty, anti-linky over there. I’m having a moment).

Now it’s your turn to link up your post and join in. If you’re new here and want to know what the Photo Gallery feature is, go and read all about it, and then come right back and join in!

Here’s how to join in

Take a photo using the theme I’ve given as your inspiration. There are no rules and you can interpret the theme any way you like. Write a blog post or caption. You can write as many or as few words as you like. You don’t even need to use a new photo; just a photo you think represents the prompt.

 Add the Photo Gallery badge (and the foot of this post) to your post so other readers can find the other entries.

 Use the linky tool at the bottom of this post to link up your post so readers can find you. The linky stays open until Tuesday so you have plenty of time to join in.

➤ Tweet me with the hashtag #thegallery and I will retweet and share your entry (you can find me on Twitter @Tara_Cain). Or you can  use the hashtag #thegallery on Instagram (I’m over there as TaraLara) and I will share and comment on your photos there.

Now go visit as many of the other entries as you can. Leave a comment, discover new blogs, discover new ways of taking photos and maybe share any tips you have.

The Photo Gallery isn’t about taking technically brilliant photos. You can take them on your phone, your point and shoot or your fancy pants camera. It’s about having a passion for photos, wanting to better yourself and discovering what other bloggers are doing.

 You can also find the Photo Gallery on  Pinterest and Google +

Follow Tara Cain’s board The Photo Gallery on Pinterest.

To ensure you don’t miss a prompt, you can subscribe to the Sticky Fingers feed to have them delivered directly to your inbox every Friday.

 PLEASE don’t link dump – this is not that sort of linky!

    Lovely photo. We are very lucky with where we live, aren’t we? I love that we’re in the ‘country’ – but still within striking distance of John Lewis!!

  2. Ha ha, not a hippy at all! And I’m in total agreement with Libby – I like a bit of countryside, but easy access to shops!

    I wish I was still in the UK, it feels more like home to me.
    I’m a suburbs lover more than a city or countryside person, I like somewhere in the middle!
    Beautiful photo, handsome dog too!

    Gorgeous photo. We’re a bit like that in that we have literally four or five parks within walking distance and then the beach a short drive away. It’s nice to be near nature.

    I am the same as you, I wouldn’t like to live the city life. Maybe at one point, early twenties for a few months, but not for long term. Living out the Carrie Bradshaw moments 😉 I love the photos xx
