The Garrett County Courthouse in Oakland, Maryland is a fun building to photograph with its numerous angles and levels. At times it reminds of something you would see in a M.C. Escher piece. Please see a second more drawing-like version below. Read More
Before the new year starts, I thought it would be fun to look back on some of the most viewed and most “liked” posts on this blog. I may also throw in a couple of my personal favorites that may have not received that much attention their first time out.
For some of these Year in Review stories, I may add other photos or additional notes that have similar subject matter but did not run in the particular post the first time out. I will also provide a link to the original version.
For those of you who missed these posts the first time out, I hope you will enjoy them. For those long timers I hope you will enjoy taking a second look. I will also be running new posts as warranted so please keep an eye on the ISBAA dailies.
I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made this blog a success.

Lonaconing is well known to area photographers as the location of an Lonaconing Silk Milll, where for a fee, photographers can photograph a historic silk mill that was closed in 1957.

My favorite color has always been blue and its many hues.
I shot this photo this past summer of a church in rural Garrett County, Md. It was a beautiful day and the sky was such a dark blue I rarely see. It looks as if there is wiring on this church that enables the cross to light up at night. Something that also would probably make for a cool shot.

After moving to Northern Virginia as a little boy, I remember visiting a local park and seeing Canadian geese. A park naturalist pointed to one of the geese and told me, “that is a Canadian goose, it flies down from Canada every year to dodge the cold weather up north and enjoy the warm weather in Virginia.” The insinuation was it was special to see these birds and eventually they would fly back to Canada.
