“Home” is more than where we sleep at night. It is a place that is familiar and comforting, and it gives us a sense of belonging. Home is what and who is local — the places and people we know by heart.
Jen’s challenge this week is local. Those of you that have followed Lucid Gypsy for a while know that I have a deep attachment to my local area, the city and surrounding county. It isn’t grand, posh or showy, just very beautiful, and it isn’t difficult to show it off.
I hope you like what you see, are you sharing what local means to you?

I love your photography! Such vivid scenes. Gorgeous. I love England, can’t wait to go back one day.
Thanks Marie and I really hope you get to come back soon!
Thank you. 😊
That bull with the fish is crazy fun. Love your gallery.
Beautiful photos, Gilly. I love the cathedral, the lighting is magical. 🙂
Your “local” looks like a special place!
No argument from me 🙂
Gorgeous photos. Your local neighborhood looks lovely. Thanks for sharing your patch with us.
What a lovely tribute to your “local”. You’ve show it in great diversity. But how on earth did you choose? Your statue would fit nicely in a theme I’m contemplating called “the indignities suffered by statues”!
I miss you, bonny lass! 🙂 I’ve got 5 minutes to myself before anyone wakes up and I’m saying a few quick hellos to stop my stomach churning. We’re driving down to Doncaster Sheffield tonight to pick up Adam and Lukasz. Hugs, sweetheart, and thanks for yours. Needing them.
I know the next few days will bring all sorts of sadness, but there will be laughter as well and you’ll be surrounded with love. Take care sweetheart and I’m sending as many hugs as you could possibly use xx
I love your description of ‘Home’ Gilly, you sum it up perfectly 🙂 And I like your photos, they’re great 🙂
I really like your introduction, that’s what is all about!
You having more to show than what someone like me who followed your blog for long just reiterates how unseemly abundant, and beautiful, your ‘home’ really is.
Your love shines through dear Gilly. Such variety! The view through the gorgeous ironwork is a standout for me, as also the closing nature shots.
Glorious photographs … love the rhino.
Miss seeing you, Gilly. Hope everything is going well… ❤
