A 1-day business trip to Los Angeles didn’t leave much room for photography, except for a few shots of downtown:

“Take a ride on the Reading”   Leave a comment

After visiting the Reading Terminal in Philadelphia you’ll never look at that Monopoly chance card the same way again. The train station has been converted into a market for regional foods many years ago, and I enjoyed a couple of lunches (cheese steak!!) there this past week while attending a conference at the convention center next door.

Sushi Heaven   5 comments

Captured at Tyson’s Corner Mall near Washington DC. Loved the colors and busy scene, even though everyone there was quite calm and enjoyed their meal.

Virginia City General Store   4 comments

Grocery shopping, 150 years ago. I can only imagine what wonderful sounds that old cash register made when used (see last pic).

I don’t think so. Looks like the comfort of women’s shoes hasn’t changed in over a century. Captured in a store window in Virginia City, MT:

Captured these kids’ reactions to the eclipse shortly before totality, in Rexburg, Idaho:

Eclipse reactions   2 comments

Captured these scenes in Rexburg, Idaho moments before the total eclipse (Aug 21, 2017). These reactions paled in comparison to the reactions during totality, but I was too busy enjoying that moment to take pictures.

Abandoned Amusement Park   Leave a comment

Captured at South of the Border truck stop. Sad that these rides were decommissioned, I’m sure at some point kids LOVED to stop here to enjoy the rides while parents got a break from the incessant ‘are we there yet?’ from the backseat. Click on any pic to see them in their full glory (i.e. slideshow format).

South of the Border   1 comment

Stopping at South of the Border (between N. Carolina and S. Carolina on I-95) is like a trip back in time. This giant truck stop is definitely a 50’s throwback! Click on any pic to see them all in slideshow format. I especially liked the restaurant shaped like a sombrero.

Children’s Grave   3 comments

Heartbreaking to think that these parents buried 4 children, aged from infant to 4 years old. Life expectancy of babies at that time was pretty low – some families didn’t bother to name a baby until it had reached its first birthday!

Revolutionary War Heroes   Leave a comment

I came across a few graves of revolutionary war veterans in this cemetery in Stowe, Vermont. One died at age 80, 180 years ago, after fighting a war 240 years ago. Amazing that their gravestones have survived the Vermont weather this long.
