Inviting Porches

Porch at "Louie's Backyard"


Somewhere in Down Town


A elegant porch


A funky porch



A classic porch


I LOVE porches.

I can associate so many stories with them,
things that you can do on a porch:

relax...

make small talk with your neighbor...

sitting, talking and enjoying a glass of wine with good friends...

soaking up the sun...

act as a tourist guide and answer all the questions...

read a great book...

drink a Pina Colada...

counting the stars on a hot summer night...

having someone in your arms with you...

making (cell)phone calls...

or

just hiding out from the everyday pace of life.

Thanks for your kind comment. It is a typical southern architectural style all this porches we have down here. And I could fill a blog only with "porch photos", believe me...:-)
