we are fortunate to have settled on the border of madison, wi. we live the best of two worlds … close to downtown, but living on the edge of country that is breathtakingly beautiful.
it’s that time of year where my “head shots” needed to be updated for press packs and such. for those who don’t me, i have what could be termed only as an “allergy” to cameras (when i am on the subject side of the lens). to feel more comfortable, i chose to have the photos taken in the countryside that i drive through everyday.
i’m sharing with you a few of my favorite spots. these horses are right across the road from my daughter’s camp, and the barn is at the entrance. the country highways are endless rows of crops and corn this time of year, and the geometric patterns they create are mesmerizing. the wildflowers overtaking roadsides are untamed and simply beautiful. The other few shots are outtakes of me standing on the edge of a cornfield. Gathering wildflowers helped distract my attention from the fact that there was a camera aimed my way.
when folks ask me why we chose to put down roots in Madison, i think these snapshots offer a little more insight into why i became so smitten with it here just over 6 years ago.
