The colorful leaves of autumn in New England, the green "tunnels" of the trees over the back roads in Maryland and Pennsylvania, the grandeur of snow-capped mountains in Utah, the awesome scenery of the National Parks, the energy of the big cities, watching the waves at the beaches in Monterey, LA or in the Caribbean, and even capturing moments of watching the tiny lizards in the deep South....these are all beautiful places and ones that bring back vivid memories of living near or getting to visit them in my life.
Another movie I watched recently was set in a mythical town in Ohio called Dickens. I can only guess that this Christmas movie was created because Charles Dickens actually visited parts of Ohio in 1842. Many quaint old inns have plaques on their walls saying "Charles Dickens slept here..." And they highly decorate their inns for every season, especially for Christmas. Some even have created "Dickens Christmas Villages" and have special events reminiscent of the Victorian Christmases described in the books and basically created by Charles Dickens.
