Where do you call home?
Whether you live in a mansion, a log cabin, a cottage at the beach, a home on the lake, a trailer, or an old family homestead, we all have that place we call home. It might not even be the place we currently live. It might not be the apartment, hotel room, dorm room or friend’s sofa we are currently dwelling. It might be the place we grew up. Here is a selection of home photographs from the portfolio of fine art photographer Edward M. Fielding – www.edwardfielding.com

Your home might be a classic old vintage Airstream travel trailer. Airstream is an American brand of Travel trailers which are easily recognized by the distinctive shape of their rounded, polished aluminum coachwork.
Or your home might be a mansion. A classic large mansion with columns at the end of a long tree lined driveway.

It is a 16,000-square-foot (1,500 m2) classical revival house situated on 103 acres (0.42 km2) wooded area.
Or your home could be on the beach in Prince Edward Island, a victim of the shifting sands and coastal storms.
Or a beautifully restored Victorian house in Augusta, Maine.
Or a mansion in Vermont. Hildene, the Lincoln Family Home is the former summer home of Robert Todd Lincoln and his wife Mary Harlan Lincoln, located at 820 Hildene Road in Manchester, Vermont.
Or a former U.S. president’s summer home. Roosevelt Campobello International Park preserves the house and surrounding landscape of the summer retreat of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eleanor Roosevelt and their family. It is located on the southern tip of Campobello Island in the Canadian province of New Brunswick, and is connected to the mainland by the Roosevelt Memorial Bridge, at Lubec, Maine in the United States.

They went home and told their wives,
that never once in all their lives,
had they known a girl like me,
But… They went home.
They said my house was licking clean,
no word I spoke was ever mean,
I had an air of mystery,
But… They went home.
My praises were on all men’s lips,
they liked my smile, my wit, my hips,
they’d spend one night, or two or three.
