Home Away From Home

This is where I have found myself and spread my wings. Every time I come back from my trips and I see this beautiful skyline, it  takes my breath away. It does not matter that I should be used to this amazing view after over a decade of living here. I still look at it with the feelings I had when I first saw it! This is HOME.                                                P.S. I did not know which photo to choose, so I decided to post them all.

  1. Loved your series of shots! All of them are so well taken!

  2. I understand why you couldn’t decide which to post! They’re great 🙂

  3. It is hard when you love them all 🙂

  4. I am sorry about your father. You are right, the pain never goes away. It merely transforms itself into a huge sink hole. My father has been gone since 1985, I was 22 when he passed. I will never forget, nor will I allow my self to. One thing is for certain, and as said, ‘it does not get easier”. It doesn’t. I still, miss him after all this time. I think of my dad often this past May 4, my day would have been 86. I feel he missed out on many of the important moments in my life and the lives of my children, his grandchildren, and being a great-grandfather. He was a wonderful man who in my eyes no one will ever fill that void. Know this, there are others out there who feel like we do. We merely must persevere. I like your photos I like the one in the middle as it has a bit more vibrancy that the others.

  5. All three stunning examples of your talent!

  18. Thank you for liking my photo. I love your skyline photo but it’s the feeling that goes with it I really relate to. Born in Manhattan , when I get to go home, there is a peace that comes over me in the middle of that crazy city. I’m sorry about your dad. I went through it 8 years ago and he still shows up in my dreams.Thanks for sharing.

  19. Thank You. I had no idea that so many people can relate about my dad. Sorry about your dad too. Have a good one.

    I think it’s awesome that people are so much alike, yet so different in many ways. I say that because although I can appreciate your love of the view from your window, it’s not appealing to me at all. I do love photography though, and you have some amazing shots on your blog!

  25. Thanks Bambi Lynn

  26. Beautiful skyline, where is it ?

  27. Chicago, United States
