I had off from school today to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. After doing a few chores, I said goodbye to my husband, packed George into the car and drove to nearby Havre de Grace, Maryland – a rather historic little town at the mouth of the Susquehanna River at the head of the Chesapeake Bay.
It was a gray day and I thought I’d walk around by the water and maybe get some photo ideas.
Well, it was super cold on this gray day – and even though I was bundled up somewhat well, the path to the lighthouse was very slippery.
I took the photo of the gulls in the parking lot of the yacht basin.
I almost deleted this photo above because it was blurry. But I liked the composition, and I could see in my mind how I wanted it to look.
And now I’m glad I kept it.
When I download photos into my hard drive, I go through and delete the bad ones right away. It makes me feel better to have gotten the deed done and besides, I don’t need a bunch of waste on the hard drive. So I make my decisions as to which files to keep and I tend to make them fast.
The Concord Point Lighthouse is so picturesque. It was built in 1827 and is located at the point where the Susquehanna River meets the tidal flow of the bay. It holds the distinction of being one of the oldest lighthouses in continuous operation on the East Coast.
