Back Country Road


There are dozens of roads like this in my area--I usually fly down them (although at a more sensible speed than true locals who know every bump and curve) barely noting my surroundings. While scenic, the roads are your mode of transportation, not the destination. Except perhaps when you like a variety of backgrounds for your pictures; so today I stopped to smell the roses, or in this case the dirt and growing things along the back roads. In this area the roads are lined with farms; some have signs out front with countdowns to when sweet corn is available, or advertising their free range eggs and even a few who offer nightcrawlers for sale! I technically live in the city, but I enjoy this area outside of those streets a bit more. I like how much bigger the sky appears, I like the quaint red barns with their colorful hex signs, and the random people who walk and ride their bikes back here seemingly in the middle of the nowhere headed to who-knows-where...

It was good decision you make to stop and use this as a backdrop. I feel like roads like this is very Americana, don't know why. I don't think many other places on earth have highways. It would be more perfect if you were near a desert and there's a tumbleweed rolling by. Whoa, lost myself in an imagination there!

Gorgeous photos! There aren't any roads like this where I live, so this setting looks truly exotic to me. Also, that dress is so pretty and unique!

I'm running my very first giveaway on my blog this week, and I'd love for you to check it out :)

Yay for brooches! :)

That's the nice thing about living in a small town...getting out of "the city" means just driving a few miles away and roads like this lined with farms are abundant.

Cute photos! I love that dress. Also, coming from Texas, I find that country roads are some of the best places to be.
