Or perhaps it’s just because, when you live somewhere for a while, you start move through the environment far too quickly, trying to get from A to B, without stopping to take in the details all around you?

Wish I had know you were coming through, would have loved to meet up for tea. Though I am sure you had little free time on your hands. Enjoying living vicariously through your lens. 🙂
