Quiet Afternoon

Quiet Afternoon

Recently, I came upon this December 2012 image of a quiet afternoon near Baltimore's Inner Harbor. 

Sunset Harbor

Quick post today as Hurricane Sandy blows through the region. The rain began yesterday but the worst remains ahead. We're well prepared, just a matter of riding it out now. Today I thought I would post an image with a colorful, sunset sky, as I look forward to seeing the next one, which is days away. This image was taken on the other side of the Chesapeake Bay back in the summer during a trip to Maryland's Eastern Shore. I remember the intense heat of that day but also remember the fun of traveling on the open sea. As we approached the docks off of Taylor's Creek the sun was setting and the sky was transitioning toward the stormy night ahead.

Houseboat

Welcome back! In today's short post, we visit a common sight found in and around many harbors. They come in all shapes, sizes and conditions and many are somewhat luxurious.

The houseboat can be a very interesting structure and I have always wondered what life is like living in one, although they are not for me long term. As much as I love the water, I would never consider one to be home sweet home. But everyone has to live somewhere and this houseboat, as they say, looks lived in. Much like a house on land, it has the family car boat parked in the driveway. ;-)

Happy Friday everyone! Weekends often provide time for some fun and relaxation, moments to gather your thoughts or to pursue your favorite pastime. Whatever the case, here's to a great one filled with memories. I'll be busy on Saturday but a 1/2 weekend will do nicely as well. ;-)

We close out the week with a peaceful scene of a sailboat anchored in the harbor during the blue hour. It was around 5:40 am, which is one of my favorite times to be out and about, chasing that short-lived twilight. There is something very special about this time of day, beyond the special lighting available to us photogs. There is that solitude and brief period to connect with nature, uninterrupted.

Well, before I go off waxing philosophical, let's get on to today's image.
