Capturing pictures of tourist spots is common but quite often memories exist close to home that we tend to ignore. My current home town Cary is a small beautiful suburb of Raleigh, the capital of North Carolina. It is around 263 miles (423KM) south of Washington DC on the East coast of the USA.
Downtown Raleigh is not like New York or Paris but it has its own charm of a small town. However the real beauty of my hometown is the woods, trees, greenways, walking trails, parks, and lakes. Spring and autumn are in particularly pleasing, so here are some pictures of a spring evening:
Usually a busy crossing of downtown Raleigh in the daytime but after office hours it is slow. Walking on this part of the downtown in the evenings is not a common practice among locals but of course some of the best restaurants are in this area.
No, this is not my house. But it is not uncommon to see houses on the lake. A nearby subdivision has several homes with backyard facing the lake.
It was interesting to see a single boat in the lake.
Usually my Sundays end with a walk at this lake around sunset.
