In this week’s photo challenge, we had to select a photograph that in some way means “Home.” I selected this photograph—one I took over the summer—of the beach in Ulmstead, where I grew up and where my parents still live. I got a new camera last year, and I went out one day and practiced taking all sorts of photos. This playset is one that has been around since I was little, as you can see by its aged look. I think that’s part of its charm; the beach is so beautiful, and there are picnic tables and steps that take you to the Magothy River.
It’s one of my favorite places on the planet.
