O’er the Home of the Brave

Day 151 of 365

Late this afternoon I visited Raleigh National Cemetery and was there at 5:00 p.m. when they raised the flag from half to full mast.

Day 149 of 365

These gardenias are planted along the walkway leading up to the back porch of Haywood Hall.   I love the way their fragrance greets me the moment I step out onto the porch.

Walter Reed’s Murfreesboro Home

Day 144 of 365

This week I made my first visit to Murfreesboro, North Carolina.  I instantly fell in love with this historic little town.  Because I was there on business, I did not have much time for photography, but I did capture this shot of the house where Walter Reed lived in Murfreeboro.

Day 140 of 365

I spent the day in Wilmington, so of course I photographed my favorite downtown view, the Riverfront from across the Cape Fear River.
