A Few Friday Frames

Leave a comment

Got out for a few minutes today. I heard they opened Ellicott Mills drive to Ellicott City today. Been quite some time since that route has been available. The light was working at that corner of Main Street again so be careful. For a few minutes that I was there, the sun was still peaking through the gathering clouds.

But it didn’t last long. The sun that is. But just long enough for a few shots before it started to get very dark and rain.

Always proud.

Something draws me to this town. Maybe having worked there a few years. Maybe it’s because its my better half’s home town. Maybe because I’ve always felt so comfortable there.

Enjoying the change of seasons.

I guess it could be the charm of watching the water just roll down the river.

It’s easy to find something new if you’re looking.

Or appreciating the history.

1931. That’s Old.

Maybe the tunnel under the bridge.

Solid.

I was going to walk the whole town but the skies didn’t look promising so I had many 20 minutes on the lower end. Got back to my car at the lot near the Trolley Stop, just as it started to drizzle.

I never tire of standing on this bridge. Makes me think of some close friends.

Before I got to town and the storm came up I stopped by a few trees that were raining blooms.

So maybe I’ll get a few minutes tomorrow and grab a few more frames of new images to share. Welcome to the weekend.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Stress is an interesting bedfellow. But I will not let it into my heart.

I think only when you’re older, that you can see how many things are interconnected. Well I guess there are a few smart young people. Then again maybe I’m just a slow learner?

I’m more at peace with myself now than at any other point in my life so far.

Tomorrow is going to be a back breaker. I just hope it’s not going to be mine.

Life is short. Even if you live to be a happy old person.

Think I’ll do some traveling. Like up to the kitchen to get myself some dinner.

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.
