I just love old steam driven traction engines. I offer this up for your entertainment.

An afterthought with this shot…You spend a fortune on camera and glass,and turn the shot into a pencil drawing…I must be mad 😉

John Marshall

Black And White Photography, Laurie, Photography

Chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Marshall, who had almost no formal schooling and studied law for only six weeks, nevertheless remains the only judge in American history whose distinction as a statesman derived almost entirely from his judicial career. Following a diplomatic mission to France, he won election to Congress, where he supported President John Adams. Adams appointed him secretary of state and in 1801 chief justice, a position he held until death.

The Wall

Black And White Photography, David Jensen, Photography


On my recent outing for #optoutside, I visited Banning State Park in northern Minnesota.  This is part of a structure that served those who worked in the rock quarry.  The clouds were a nice bonus and added a bit of extra drama to the image.

An iconic landmark on the St. Petersburg skyline, the Peter and Paul Fortress harks back to the early sixteenth century.  In this image I attempted to recapture the building’s historical nature with some grain and a slight blue colour cast.
