Your Country’s Best

Country Bumpkin

If you’re not from the prairie,
You don’t know what’s flat,
You’ve never seen flat.

When traveller’s pass through our great plain,
They all view our home, they all say the same:
“It’s simple and flat!” They’ve not learnt to see,
The particular beauty that’s now part of me.

If you’re not from the prairie,
You don’t know what’s flat.

From the book by David Bouchard

A self taught amateur photographer who resides in beautiful Winnipeg, Manitoba, which is a prairie city in the center of Canada. My dear wife Marg and I have been married for 52 years, and we have 2 married daughters and 3 grandchildren to share our busy lives.I love to read, practice photography, spend time with my family, play around on the computer, and volunteer a lot of my time at our local Nature Center, where I serve as an interpreter for kids programs.

    What a wonderful view of the prairie and so true … the “Ties that Bind.” Where would we be if we couldn’t reach out with the many forms of transportation? There are travels that take us over the prairies and over the mountains. The Great Plains represents many beautiful scenes known to us all. Barb

    A very appropriate name for the image as the ties “bind” the foreground to the lovely sky. There is a lot of balance here and harmony too. Well done Larry.
