Brashley’s MWM Challenge #32

 Brashley Photography’s Mid-Week Monochrome Challenge : Maryland’s Statehouse

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is an experiment of sorts on my part. I’ve never inserted a slideshow before today. I rather like the effect. One is able to display several photographs in a small amount of space. It spares one from scrolling down, down, down. There are only three photos in this particular slideshow. In future when I have a lot of photos that I’d like to present at once, I will definitely employ this feature.

FOWC with Fandango: Dependent

Silhouette 1

The Spirit of Sally lived on in the house on Riverview Road. Open to tourists, Tuesdays through Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. it was staffed with volunteers, some of whom claimed to have seen her. Their stories were always the same. She was climbing the stairs. She was weeping. On her head she wore a bonnet reminiscent of the Colonial era. Her legs poked out of a billowy dress. Oh! How she wept and moaned! There were some who suggested that one’s ability to see Sally was dependent on the amount of hallucinogens one had ingested a few hours prior. Others were certain that Sally the Ghost was real.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #86: Change Your Perspective

I took this photo with my iPhone 11. I chose “panorama” from the horizontal menu at the bottom of the display and then spun slowly on an axis a full 360 degrees.WWE toot tootThis was taken underneath the dome of the State House in Annapolis, Maryland. Staring up like this too long is a good way to hyper-extend your neck!Dome 1Change Your Perspective

 

Mind over Memory’s Sculpture Saturday

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!Sculpture Ben Frank bustStatue 1 womanStatue 2 SchleyStatue Pitt 1
