Purple Sunrise

Irises – Ridge, Maryland

This is just a glorious morning sunrise, with the sun filtering through the tree branches to barely touch the iris blossoms. It was always wonderful to wake up on our sailboat and see the early morning sights before anyone else began to stir. Vibrant colors like this always make me happy.

Modern Monolithic

Montgomery County government buildings – Rockville, Maryland

Every once in awhile, I go shooting photographs of architecture. This is one of those times, which coincided with me having to participate in a jury selection process at the nearby county courthouse. When I was attending the nearby high school in the late 1970s, I would walk through this exact location – which looked very different back then. Even in those days I would take architecture photos (with my trusty Pentax MX 35mm film camera) in this area because there would be interesting shadow interactions with the morning sunrise. However, now the architecture has gone monolithic modern and there is a deep canyon within the cliffs of glass and metal.
