There is exciting news about different developments in Lewis Center, our quiet suburb north of Columbus. In the next year we expect an Ikea near Polaris and a commercial and residential area to be established in "downtown" Lewis Center. Right now it is a small collection of buildings and a handful of businesses. I plan to get out and photograph the cornfields and corner store so I can one day show my grandchildren "Look at how much this place has grown!"
The same thing happened in the suburb where I grew up. I remember it was literally cornfields and empty plots of land. Now it's a booming area with lots of commercial development. I'd love to have a photo of the same intersection, which is now heavily congested with traffic and businesses dotting the streets. It is the opposite of a ghost town.
Just sharing that it's a good idea to take pictures of the everyday, mundane things like unpopulated areas, because our memories will fade and the photos will amaze us. I'm betting Delaware County - Lewis Center especially - grows significantly in the coming years.
