I know that title is an oxymoron, given what is going on in this city these days, but it didn’t seem to bother these two as they enjoyed a quiet Friday evening sunset over the Lincoln Memorial.

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.

New York Fire Escape   1 comment

Squint a little and see how the shadows turn into stairs (or maybe you see something entirely different?).  I enjoyed the angles and the play of light and shadows on a recent walk through New York.

Old New York   2 comments

Near Wall Street in lower Manhattan, a few buildings remind us of how it looked in the early days before skyscrapers took over the island. The second  be looks like a precursor of the Flatiron Building to me.

Yes, just about everyone knows these and they’ve been photographed from all possible angles – but when you’re in Paris it’s hard NOT to take pictures of some of the icons that make this city so lovely and unique:

Old-fashioned Gas Station   2 comments

This gas station sits at the outskirts of our little town, and doesn’t seem to get much traffic, but it keeps hanging in there, off the beaten path and not far from large-brand gas stations.

Josiah Kelsey House   1 comment

This house, built in 1760, is located on Main Street of our little town of Clinton. Unfortunately it’s in terrible shape and I always hope, when I pass it, that someone will take pity and restore it to its former splendor.
