More from Beacon Falls, CT

A few more pictures from Beacon Falls, Connecticut. The old train car and train stop was a very cool place to explore! And it's not everyday you see a fly fisher. It made me think of something from the Pacific Northwest.

Thanksgiving Weekend in Connectiuct

Spending the Thanksgiving Weekend at my parents place in Beacon Falls, Connecticut. Had some "down time" this afternoon to take some pictures in town. Not sure if the Christmas wreath in the woods got their via human or mother nature. The little kid in the window was taken yesterday at BWI Airport in Maryland.

Thanksgiving Parade in Silver Spring Pt. 2

More pictures from yesterday's parade in my neighborhood. As you can tell, I took a bunch of pictures with sepia which was fun to change things up. The parade ended with a visit by Santa Claus delighting the young parade goers!

Thanksgiving Parade in Silver Spring Pt. 1

Thanksgiving Day was celebrated a little early in Silver Spring. The county (Montgomery) parade was this morning. And as you tell from the last picture, it was a cold morning to take in a parade. Nerveless, I could not avoid the opportunity to take some parade pictures in my neighborhood. I will post some more pictures tomorrow!

Cool Photo from Georgetown

So 30 days ago I joined this web site called The mission of the web site is to try to post one photo everyday (or every couple days) on your own calendar. Taking a photo everyday is pretty hard, but tonight I wanted to do something different. On my way home from work, I drove thru the neighborhoods of Georgetown. I passed Dumbarton Oaks, which is a research library and collection run by the Trustees for Harvard University. I saw this cool gate, and looked in and got this pretty cool picture.

Rock Creek Park Part 1

After a long week at work, it was nice to get outside today and take in some fall scenery. I went to to Rock Creek Park (which stretches from Maryland into DC).. The first picture is a reflection of another photographer in DC taking pictures. I took a lot of pictures, but decided just to show eight. I will post the other four tomorrow!
