The Watery Jail

Watery jailAs I made my way around the river’s edge, I looked across the water and saw this strange structure. As soon as I saw it I thought, “that looks just like a jail!” I thought it would be an interesting photo to put on my blog, so I took a picture. I kept wondering what this structure was or used to be. After some digging I found out what the structure used to be: it’s the remnant of my county’s first hydroelectric power plant. The original structure was built in the late 1800’s. I thought it made a very interesting picture, and captures a piece of history. Ever pass by a dilapidated structure and wonder what it might have been? Try looking for nearby plaques or historical markers, or searching for information online. No matter where you live, you’ll be surprised how much history is around you!

Here Kitty, Kitty!

Tiger at zooWhen I saw this beautiful cat I was in total awe! I love cats of all kinds, and was able to find a spot at this exhibit without a lot of people in order to get this photo. It appears the Tiger was eating a treat left by the zookeeper. A Tiger can represent so many things: power, grace, strength, etc. A picture of a wild cat in a nice frame is the perfect gift to any cat lover. This was a great picture, and would be the perfect addition to the scrapbook project mentioned in my previous post. What else will go in our scrapbook? You’ll have to keep reading my blog to find out!
