Going Home

I grew up in a small town called Fairborn that was situated close to Dayton, Ohio. We moved when I was 11 and haven't been back in a very long time. From what I understand the town is suffering with job loss and many folks having moved out of the area. I found a ds106 assignment that asks you to create a postcard of where you come from. I had no idea how important this assignment would become for me this evening. I apologize for the large size of this file but I wanted to have some motion to my image so animated gif it is, and it's a big one. I happened to find a video of someone driving through Fairborn on Youtube. To you this moving image will mean very little, to me it's my childhood and I can't look at it without a wave of emotion coming over me.
