HOUZZ Ideabooks for Outdoor Landscape photos...

As you might imagine, I gravitate towards photos and images of spaces and places. 

I recommend joining Houzz.com, for free, because you can create “Ideabooks” from stunning photos that many people post on the site.  (I like it even better than Pinterest because Landscape and other Professionals are involved.)

You can see a few of my Ideabooks here:
