CMMC: Bright Rectangles

Becky B at Life of B is the guest host of Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge. Once again I find myself turning to the historic and beautiful Maryland State House (and its environs) for inspiration.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #141: Geometry

Here is my contribution to Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Geometry.

The Maryland Statehouse is a stunning masterpiece of interior and…

…architectural design.

There’s an overload of geometrical shapes in the images above- lots of rectangles with a few perfect squares thrown in, and some lovely straight, A to B lines. In fact, if you look closely at near center, you will see a jet engine trail, again A to B!

Alive & Trekking Which Way Photo Challenge: March 19, 2021

It is always a pleasure to participate in the Which Way Challenge, hosted by Alive & Trekking.

And there are even more prohibitions!

At left is the Maryland State Seal. The colony was founded in 1632 by a wave of King Charles I (the one who got his head chopped off by the Puritans). It was a proprietary colony given to George Calvert, the first Lord Baltimore. The King graciously named the colony after his French-born wife, Henrietta Maria, known in England as Queen Mary. Lord Baltimore envisioned Maryland as a refuge for English Catholics, who faced some serious persecution in the Motherland.

Color Your World: Silver

Thank you to Tourmaline for hosting the Color Your World Challenge. For the week of March 16, 2021, the color is silver.

Both photographs are from the Maryland State House in Annapolis, Maryland. It is closed right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic; however, once it reopens, I strongly encourage anyone nearby to make the trip. It’s an amazing structure, as it is loaded with history. For instance, it’s the only state house to have served to house the Congress of the United States.
