Area leading to the C&O Canal Visitor Center in Cumberland, MD. The Visitor Center is located in the lower concourse of the Western Maryland Train Station. Both are a wonderful place to visit and learn about the C&O Canal & Canal Basin, and the historical train station where one can purchase tickets to ride an authentic steam engine called Mountain Thunder.

The links below will take you to the sites for more information on the C&O Canal Visitor Center and for schedules for riding Mountain Thunder of the Western Maryland Railroad.

Watch For “ Destrian “ Traffic

      
Please click on the photo for a better image...

I was waiting in the drive-thru line at a Dairy Queen when I spotted this sign next to the pick-up window. Not thinking to clearly, had a Blizzard on my mind, my first thought was… What the heck is a “destrian”? Then I realized that whoever put up the small fence inadvertently covered up the “pe” of pedestrian and never fixed it.

Ummm, maybe they had a Dairy Queen treat on their mind as well when they did the work… Smile


Note: once you do get close to the pick-up window you can see the whole word - Pedestrian...

A Chair For A Robin

Looking out through a screen in a window, I spied this Robin sitting on this chair. I shot through the screen and was happy with the overall softness of the image.

Robins are one of the more friendly of birds and will allow one to come closer to them than most birds that you see. I’m not sure why but I enjoy getting close to them. Even when I’ve been weeding the garden they have come as close as three feet to me. I like that…. Smile

North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River

      
Please click on the photo for a better image...

When I took this photo I had in mind a soft, not smooth, color image of the river flowing past this rock along with a little sparkle in the water. Nothing I did in my digital darkroom would allow me to achieve that goal. So, out of curiosity, I converted the image to black and white and added just a touch of a vintage look to it and what I wanted to achieve in color I did so in black & white.

Now I know I had not intended to do anymore B&W images for awhile but, in this case, I made an exemption that I’m glad that I did. I hope you like this view as well.

BTW, the North Fork of the South Branch of the Potomac River runs past Seneca Rocks in West Virginia...

The Prancing Rabbit

Seems our yard has become the playground to about three rabbits. This one likes to Prance instead of hopping… Smile

Only had one chance to get off a shot, and I had to do so through the blinds a window and a screen, in addition to a bush directly outside the window. That accounts for the look. I did crop out what did not bring anything to the scene...
