An hour in Locke

Overgrown gardens. Tibetan prayer cloths. Rickety porches. Painted mailboxes. Flowers and succulents planted in ceramic toilets. Cats sleeping in corners.


I went back to Locke. Do you remember it? I photographed it here and here and here and here and here and here.

It’s one of my favorite places. One of those places so close to home that makes me feel like I’ve gotten away for a little while.

Do you have a place like that?

Here is another look into Locke and Walnut Grove, the quaint towns on the river. It was a wintery day that tasted like summer.

    Wow Lauren – even though it’s an entire world away and looks nothing like it, the light you have captured in your photos make me think of my country home town in outback Queensland.

      Thank you, Julie. I hope one day to capture Queensland light … in Queensland! That’s definitely one place I’d love to explore.
