I was reading back through some of the comments I've received.
I'm strictly an amateur, as much interested in the technology of photography, as in the pictures I can take.
Most folks seem to like the pictures, some asking where they're at, etc., and some have speculated about where, even as far away as New Zealand.
I suspect the truth is that *everybody* lives in a place with superb photo opportunities.
It's just that if we've live there, we don't necessarily see what's literally all around us.
It's sort of like when I took biology in high school and one of the assignments was to figure out how many organisms were in a cubic inch of soil. In Iowa, this number can be in the hundreds, if bacteria, mold, etc. are counted.
The scenery around us is like that in building style, the flora, the fauna, and the people.
Just because you may have seen it every day of your life, does not mean it's not interesting to everyone else.
Or, more positively, you just need to start looking, before you can see. Just stand still for a few minutes.
