Do you ever look at a photo and it brings up all these memories? Sure that is one of the great things about photos but has an image ever taken you somewhere or evoked some type of feelings that kind of surprised you? Maybe it is in conjunction with something else and it helped stir an emotion that you didn't even relate with until looking at the image?
For me, I experienced it with the following image. It is just a simple image with a rural road. When I started adding keywords and other information, I had glanced at the image again and thought of the John Denver song, "Take me home, country roads". From there I went on a long journey down memory lane. Growing up, my parents played all of John Denver's music. It wasn't until I was older did I realize how much his music related to my parents. I group up in the country, well removed from paved roads and even neighbors. Now, my parents have moved to a small city. They still hold on to the farm we grew up on, mostly for my dad. He loves to come back and do small work around place. He is a country boy at heart. So, seeing this image just took me there. A country road that is taking my dad home. Of course I had to go find the song and play it along with many other John Denver hits.
Have a great day and I hope you view an image soon that makes you smile about something close to you.
