I’ve just returned home from a 16-day journey. It’s the longest trip I’ve taken in quite a while. It involved a lot of air and rail travel, both of which I relish.
The last leg was a peaceful nine-hour trans-Atlantic flight with great views of the sea and long expanses of Canadian wilderness.
The westbound time zone shift meant that I was wide awake at 4:00 a.m. today.
A common refrain of “it’s nice to be back in my own bed” won’t be uttered by me. I’m rarely unhappy with Airbnb or hotel accommodations.
In fact, the ones I’ve had over the last half month have been some of the best ever.
But I am happy to be back in my own part of the world as the peak of Autumn approaches here. There are so many places just steps from my front door where I love to craft portraits.
Count me as happy to have returned to my own backlot.
