Photo Break – Myrtle Beach at Night

MYRTLE-4984A brief photo break today to celebrate my website hitting 100,000 page views!

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.

Photo Break – Mansfield Reformatory

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.
