Time to pump it up

What a beautiful day for mid October here in the northeast U.S. Spent a few hours cruising northern Howard County and then a walk around Ellicott City. Felt great to get some exercise and feel that warmth of the sun. I’m both excited to see so much is done in such a short time. It really is amazing. But I’m disheartened with distance so far to go for many owners and businesses. This one was a sea change for our town. I’m going to try to do my part to help it return to glory again.

Saw this barn off Rt 144 just past Lisbon I believe. I bet this is interesting in the morning sunlight also. I’ll have to stop back and see.

I miss the days of endless farms throughout the county. Yes its still a beautiful area but already over developed in most part of the county now. I guess it’s the price for having such a good area and services. No wonder everyone wants to move here.

I wish I had taken my time today. Rushed a lot of images and didn’t like most of what I shot today. Such is life. Sometimes those are the ones that are most popular though. So what the hell. I get a few of EC up tomorrow at the latest.

Anyway, it’s to beautiful outside to sit in front of the laptop. I’m headed back outside for a few minutes.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
