(*photo taken with an iPhone during my morning run)
Story behind the photo:
Few months after we moved to Iowa in 2004, we were scouting for a permanent place to live in. We found a vacant lot for sale, whose front view is the above photo. We fell in love with the place and the view, a typical Iowa landscape of farm, barn and silo. However at that time, we were not ready to buy, and somebody else bought the property and built a house there. We were crushed.
I could have been waking up to this view every day! But it was not meant to be.
More than a year later, we found a house less than a mile away from this lot, with such an impressive view as well (maybe even better), which now I wake up to. To this I am very grateful.
Moreover, I can still enjoy the view in the above photo, when I go on my morning run.
