The Historic Montpelier Train Station
“On the winding roads of Route 20 in Orange County, Virginia stands a century-old train depot, home to the local Montpelier Station, Virginia post office. On February 21, 2010, it became the home of James Madison’s Montpelier’s newest exhibit— The Montpelier Train Depot: In the Time of Segregation. In 2008, the Montpelier Foundation undertook a one-year renovation of the Depot. They restored the Depot to the way it was in the 1910s in order to document a time of legalized segregation in Virginia and throughout the United States”
The buzzer sounded, the people left, and all that remained were rows and rows of empty seats.
It was getting a bit dark for me to be out on the trail by myself … but then I saw this and knew that I was there at the right time. Thank goodness I was using my cell phone to track my mileage!
Nothin’ like a sunset on the Chesapeake Bay. Contentment!
Still setting up the new computer, so I continue to work from the cellphone. Looking forward to be up and running soon, and when I am, I’ll be toasting with another one of these. Cheers!
I left the house on Thursday thinking “oh my goodness, I need to schedule a photo for Monochromia”. This thought was quickly followed by “when am I going to be able to find time to do some shooting?”
Then I got to my office, jumped out of the truck, and saw this guy walking on the sidewalk in front of the door to my office. Aren’t the patterns wonderful? If you’d like to see the colors, visit my personal blog space and see the Instagram photo that I shared.
Aren’t turtles awesome?
Memorial Day in the United States, always on the last Monday in May, is a day to honor and remember those who died serving in war. Sometimes Americans forget this and say “Happy Memorial Day”. Others confuse it for Veterans Day.
We must remember those who died on the battlefield, and remember the suffering of their families.

2018 was our 20th annual program.
While visiting the University of Virginia’s College at Wise (UVA-Wise), I was caught without my camera. I did however have my new Galaxy 9 and without knowing anything about the phone or it’s camera settings, snapped this image of a sculpture of Thomas Jefferson.
The adventure of driving a backroad in rural Wisconsin during a blizzard. Happy to note that many hours later, after getting stuck only once, we arrived safely at our destination.
