Day 73 – March 14, 2019
Welcome to a trip through one of the towns I drive through every day on my way to and from work. On this 70 degree, thaw producing, glorious day, with my power windows and sunroof open, I took a leisurely drive through town, capturing new shots of old subjects. I think I am really at a place where I need to spend more time with my better camera as the cameras I am using just rent doing the views justice. But I will not complain. The featured photo is a shot of a space in between two buildings which opens up to the church in the background. I really thought how the trees framed the bell tower was eye catching. The white picket, spiky, fence was just what was needed to justify this shot. Below I have a short series featuring the townscape. The sign is on the edge of town which sits in front of the National Firefighter’s Academy and the home of FEMA. As you continue to drive, you end up at the town square. The VFW building sits, majestically, like a lookout tower, on one of the corners. A turn in either direction at the square, takes you through the center of town riding along Main Street. It is a very small, quaint little town, rich in history as it is known to be one of the more important staging areas during the battle of Gettysburg. With a University on the edge of town and both the Academy and the Mother Elizabeth Seaton shrine within the town limits, for a little town it boasts some pretty big residents. That’s probably why I don’t live here.
