Colorado Dreamin’

Colorado-Dreaming

Happy New Year!  I hope that you are looking forward to 2019; I know that I am!

This is going to be my last http://www.fivefeetsquare.com blog post.  I am so grateful to all who have followed me, liked and commented on my images, throughout the years.   I will continue to share my travel photography on Instagram – http://www.instagram.com/barbarayoungleson/     I hope to see you there.

I love the words of Helen Keller: “life is either a daring adventure or it is nothing.”  I know that adventure awaits, even if it’s in my own back yard.

Look Up!  Life’s happening up there.  I’m rarely disappointed while sightseeing and look up to capture street scenes far above street level.  There’s an intimacy, a slice of life, that’s revealed from this perspective. I hope that you enjoy the view!
