Passing By

“Watching people is a good hobby, but you have to be careful about it. You can’t let people catch you staring at them. If people catch you, they treat you like a first-class criminal.

Too Peaceful?

“There are few things as charming and attractive as country life, especially when we are tired, stressed, and overwhelmed by the noise and pollution of the city. Country life is the only available type of paradise for people who seek peace, calm, beauty, and harmony.” ~ Unknown

This is my second offering for GC and my photo challenge Peaceful over at Weekly Prompts. I’ve also linked to three other sites (detailed at the base).
