City of Rehoboth Beach Pavilion

While visiting the city of Rehoboth Beach this past weekend I rolled out of bed early to make my way to the shoreline to create some sunrise images.

Just Hanging Out

Just outside of the Atlantis Hotel in the Bahamas is a quaint little village along the edge of the harbor. It's a great place for just hanging out. There are all sorts of shops and cafe's there, which draws a decent crowd daily. It's paradise for many tourist, just what most are looking for while traveling and enjoying life. Here in the village you can find everything from ice cream cones and beach sandals to 5-carat diamond rings and Cartier watches.

As mentioned in this previous post, I have joined in on the "iPhone Friday" fun so I provide you with this iPhone image below.

One of the things I have always loved about the tropics is the wonderful colors used for buildings. They just make everything seem so festive. But since this is a street scene of sorts, I though a monochrome conversion was in order as well.

Lines and Shadows

During our recent visit to South Carolina I had a serendipitous moment when we stopped to take a break while out cycling. Dismounting the bike in a nice shady spot I looked up to see these lines and shadows before me and knew I had to grab a shot. The repeating patterns, vanishing point and a splash of color supplied by the flowers sealed the deal.

I have said this before and will say it yet again, a funny thing happens on the road to becoming a photographer. Your vision changes and you will never see the world the same again. :-)

Thanks for dropping by!

Free Ride

In Maryland's capital city, Annapolis, one can take a free ride through the central business district on a trolley. Let's face it, not many rides are free in this day and age. But riding the trolley through town takes you to many interesting places.  Annapolis dates back to 1649 so needless to say, there is a very rich history associated with this city on the Chesapeake Bay. In fact, it served as the temporary capital of the United States in 1783 and 1784. More on the rich history in future post, today we have a simple street scene of  the aforementioned free ride trolley service.

Trolley cars have been around since the early 1800's when they were horse-drawn and helped build many cities. Even the modern versions of today maintain a bit of a retro look. I remember the tracks that ran the main streets of Baltimore and the overhead power lines that drove the "streetcar" of the late 50's. Yes, that was more than a few weekends ago, but I still remember. :-)

So if you are ever in the historic city of Annapolis Maryland, hop aboard the trolley and enjoy the free ride around town. The drivers will point out various points of interest and all are rather short walks from the trolley stop.

Thanks for visiting!
