Headlines at the Newseum in Washington DC

I took these pictures several years ago during a visit to The Newseum in Washington DC. I’d love to go back since my photography skills and equipment have improved so much since then but there is only so much time to do everything. There are lots of free museums in DC and this one has an admission price but if you are like me and a fan of journalism, the print media, and/or photography yu might enjoy a visit to The Newseum.

* Hint: Search for discounts online you can usually find them.

Friday Fictioneers: Blind Faith

Cheryl looked into Randy’s eyes. She’d always loved his eyes. They were this beautiful shade of green; whenever they weren’t red from the alcohol or glossy from the drugs. But she rarely saw her husband then. He would leave for days at a time. Then he’d come back, crash, and ask her forgiveness. Not necessarily in that order.

There was a time it wasn’t like this. Cheryl remembered how happy they used to be. And so, each time he begged for help, swore he wanted to get clean, wanted things to go back, she believed him. It was what she wanted too.

Low Water Bridge over Cedar Creek Connecting Warren County with Shenandoah County was Impassable on Friday May 18, 2018

After more than a week of steady rain our river, creeks, and other waterways have swelled beyond their banks. This is Cedar Creek, a tributary of the Shenandoah River and a low water bridge that was not only covered with water but debris last Friday, the 18th of May 2018.

Best of the Week: When the Farmer Takes a Detour

We have had days and days of rain here. So much so that most of our secondary roads are damaged from streams running on either side and pot holes that give your shocks a shock. One road near the quarry has become a sink hole and has been closed for days.

I decided to by-pass some of these roads, thinking I could get a shot of the creek rising. I was a little late, as it had already risen and closed the road ahead so I had to go around. Obviously the same thing happened to the farmer as he journeyed to feed his cattle. I’m sure he was on his way but that didn’t stop them from telling me, as I slowed to take their picture, how unjust it was.

Spring is one of my favorite seasons. It is the season that showcases the vibrancy of pinks and purples, and of course, yellows. Click here to see how Spring has sprung in my neighborhood.
