PPAC #21

This amazing frieze can be found inside the Circuit Courthouse in Annapolis, Maryland. This was erected as a memorial to honor those lawyers who fought and died in the “Great War.” To me, this depiction brings to mind the famous painting by Jacques-Louis David, Oath of the Horatii. A pre-Revolution work of art, the theme is loyalty to the state, without regard to clan or clergy. There is a Latin inscription at the bottom, but it is too faded for me to read. Any thoughts? A translation would be greatly appreciated.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #159: Postcards

I’ve resized all of these photos so that they are now 5 by 7 inches- the perfect size for a postcard. I respectfully submit them to Guest Host Anvica’s Gallery for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #159: Postcards.

We will not discuss the outrage of January 6, 2021 here. To the right is the botanical garden- a truly magnificent place!
I guess the sky could have been a little more blue, but this is an angle of the Maryland State House that one doesn’t usually see.
Sunrise on the Chesapeake Bay. It the far distance, you can see the Bay Bridge- a great feat in engineering!
