Got back late yesterday from a few days’ vacation down in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. My last evening there, I took a walk along the sand south of Apache Pier after a kind of drizzy overcast day. I snapped this picture handheld (forgot my tripod on this trip) and I liked how it turned out.
Above are a couple of pictures I took during a photography workshop at the Mansfield Reformatory in Mansfield Ohio. Erected in the late 1800s, the prison was closed a few decades ago but is maintained as an historic site. In the intervening time its been used as the setting for a number of movies, most notably the Shawshank Redemption. It was a fascinating experience and if you are near Mansfield Ohio I recommend stopping in for a tour.
BTW – my apologizes for the dearth of posts lately, but some recent changes has left me with a serious shortness of free time.
I visited Washington DC last week for a few days, and spent a couple of hours touring the National Cathedral. Its a huge awe inspiring building, and I snapped the image here from the lower level looking up.
