Mid-Atlantic Photos: Finding Beauty In My Own Backyard

It’s not often that the weekly photo sharing event #FriFotos leaves me stumped, but that’s how I first felt this week when the theme was announced – Backyard. Then I thought about it and realized it was the perfect way to share some photos from my part of the country. I’ve been guilty of traveling around the world but not spending enough time exploring the beautiful region that I call home, so last year I made a determined effort to add in shorter trips exploring the Mid-Atlantic. I have a lot more to see and do of course, but here are some photos from those explorations. (FYI, the Mid-Atlantic is defined as: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia)
