Today, I drove from Alabama to Ohio and journeyed from home to home. I left Alabama, where I was born and where my family currently resides. I crossed into Tennessee past the old state line church on the hill and entered the area where I was raised. Soon I was passing my childhood home, my old church and my high school. From Tennessee I made my way into the heart of Kentucky and then to the northern part of the state where I lived for a short year when I relocated to the Cincinnati area. My final destination was Ohio, where I have lived for the past twelve years. My route consisted of Highway 231/431, I65 and I71. These are just road numbers to most people, but to me, they are my memory trail. On this six hour journey, I relived scenes from my childhood, old flames were re-lit for a few moments, secrets were remembered, and thoughts of friends flooded my head as I drove past familiar homes.
You must have travel for a long tile
Yes 🙂 I’ve traveled some in my life.
That little bit off snow shot is great! I myself posted a 15 favorites of 2012 list today and included one of your Cincinnati pics – as well as a link to here – hope that’s ok w you, What type of camera do you use? Shoot RAW then photo shop them, or do you tweak and stress out the colors when you shoot and save as jpegs? Just curious, love the effect.
Of course it is fine. I shoot in both RAW and Fine. Generally I just adjust the FINE. I use a Nikon D3100. The last photo with the snow was at night and the red in the background is the street light.
So very awesome Seth…
Many Blessings, Dohiya

Love the Donkey!
Yeah, she is another one I found. They are everywhere. 🙂 Like the cows.
This was so cute to have a picture from all the different places you’ve been. It shows the beauty from all over. Love the donkey!
Thanks Tasha. How was your Christmas? Any big plans for New Years?
My Christmas was sweet. The first day off i had in awhile. Spent time with family. Stuffed my face with food. I’m actually excited for New Years because I’m not schedule for 4 days so i actually get to drink some booze 😀
Nice. Well have fun but be careful! 🙂 I can’t believe it’s almost 2013! 🙂
Wow! Your pictures always cheer me up!
And your comments do the same for me. 🙂
Thanks a lot! You make me feel high telling me this.
Love the snow at home, would make a fire cheerful.
Yes. Cozy fire. 🙂 Sounds good.
Wonderful memories…going home and then back home 🙂
Lovely photos Seth!
Angeline, Yes I agree. Thanks!
Beautiful and creative pictures1 Hope you didn’t run into the big snowstorm! 😀
No, we just had about 3 inches here. And I didn’t see any snow on the ground until I got to Louisville. So I missed it.
I love the final picture of the snow 🙂
Lorna, Thanks 🙂
Funny to think of Alabama to Ohio being a six-hour drive. They seem so much further apart, somehow.
They do but Leslie, I was in the very northern part of the state of Alabama and I live in the very southern part of the state of Ohio. 🙂
Makes sense! I guess what I meant was that to me they seem like very different places geographically and culturally, so in my mind’s atlas they are further apart 🙂
I figured and yes they are. 🙂

Beautiful – again! I love driving north/south and seeing the weather changes. We had lots of fluffy white snow on Christmas morning…it too, was beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks. I love drives in general. 🙂
I am feeling the emotion brush each photo. It is indeed sweet to return. I can only do the same via air.I love flying towards the West and picking out the Rocky mountains each time.
Enjoy your day.
The Rockey mountains are amazing from the sky. 🙂
I enjoyed looking at your photos… love the snow shoot!
Thanks so much. I’ve got more snow shots coming up on the next article.
I will have to check back… 🙂
Hey thanks visiting and for the like on my blog, you have a great blog here.
Thanks. Glad you like it.
Seth, beautiful memories within your photos. Thank you for sharing.
Welcome. Thanks for looking at them. 🙂
I was born in Mobile, Alabama. I have lived all over the South, but Mobile is still home to me. I can still see Tillman’s Corner, Whiskey Hollow and Dozier Lane in my mind’s eye. Precious memories.
beautiful photos, Seth. Thank you for sharing your journey.
Francina, Thanks! Glad you enjoyed them.
Beautiful! I enjoyed your trip down “memory lane”. Hope you had a great trip!
I did. 🙂 Thanks.
Quality as always … glad you had a safe trip. BTW – I like the “Used Cows For Sale” sign in Kentucky.
I love the last picture of snow!
Thanks so much. Glad you like that one. We got a bit of snow that day. We got more yesterday. You’ll see lots of snow pics over the next we days. 🙂
