Published by under History,Photography,Travel

Many years ago, I used to drive big rigs over the road long distance.  When I I was heading from Tx or points West, I would usually have to go over the newer of the two bridges.  It always meant that I was only about 50 miles from the house.  I can remember as a […]

Never Gets Old

Published by under History,Travel

Windsor Ruins is some place I have visited many times and I still discover new things about the place either by talking with people or just listening to the wind thru the trees.  Rarely do I process images as HDR, but the light really demanded it for this go around when I was home for […]

Jefferson Memorial

Another shot from the Tidal basin. Caught this during sunset after flying into Dulles.  I really like going here when I am in DC.  It is relatively peaceful, not crowded with people and can sit on the benches under the cherry trees and look up the National Mall and see the home of the stupid […]

Scratching a new Itch

Just Amazing Buildings

Published by under History,Night Photography,Travel

When you think of the time in which Lincoln was President of the US and what he accomplished. This building is a great memorial to the man himself and to the ideals he stood for.  SO many that are now mis quoted and taken out of context.   And then you have George Washington….   Till […]
