These sculptures were photographed last weekend at the Maryland State House in my home town of Annapolis. Marylanders are very proud of their state house. It is the only state house in the union that once housed the legislature of the republic. I believe it is the oldest structure of its kind in the country that is still in its original use. As I’ve mentioned more than once, we are so proud of the State House that it is featured on the twenty-five cent piece for Maryland. Ben Franklin, William Pitt, and an anonymous woman are my submissions for this particular week’s Saturday Sculpture. Cheers!

I was born at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, France. I find inspiration in the lives of so many people from Joan of Arc to Oscar Wilde. While my primary avocation is photography, I also enjoy philosophy, theology and most of all, history. My beloved wife, Robin Anne Smith, who passed away in 2013 is an inspiration to me. My beloved partner, Dana is also a great support and inspiration to me. I'd be remiss if I did not mention my cats: Maxwell, Nigel, Pirouette and GarGar. View more posts
