Beauty In Destruction

Sometimes even in something that is being destroyed, at a certain point, there is a mathematical rhythm about it, with many shades of gray, and it makes you want to just look at it, and wonder why it is just sitting there like it is.

It may be destruction in progress but at the same time there is a destructive beauty about it that just makes it fascinating...

Taking it easy on the banks of the Potomac River while letting the poles dangle their bait in hopes of catching that big one. In the meantime they are just relaxing and having a good time enjoying the Summer while they go "Fishing On The Potomac."

Fireworks Over Cumberland_2015

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


Like most small towns and cities in the United States, Cumberland, MD also has its fireworks. This scene is a view from the North side of the Potomac River on Cumberland's West Side looking over what is called the Blue Bridge that leads to Ridgeley, WV. The fireworks were set off from an area called Constitution Park on the East Side of Cumberland.

The Potomac runs quite smooth at this point due to a dam underneath the bridge. This allows for wonderful reflections and this image is a good example of what can be accomplished; even with a small camera like the Fuji X20, hand held and set on Pro Neg Hi film setting. Well, actually I was sitting down but this was hand held...

Friday Favorite..... Independence Celebration

      

On July 2, 1776 the Continental Congress voted to declare their independence from Great Britain. On July 4, 1776 the same Congress voted to accept the written Declaration of Independence.

During this time of celebration I would like to give thanks to the French people because without the help of France during this war America would not have become a free and independent country. So, in celebrating our independence, if you encounter anyone from France, thank them for the help their country gave to us following our Declaration of Independence...
