42. - Diamond Window

Photograph 42

A diamond window in one of the houses we visited in Concord. I guess for small windows like this they used the glass dregs, the left over pieces because they weren't taxed.

These are some berries at a farmstand up in Concord Mass.

40. - Hartwell Tavern

Photograph 40

I'm not quite sure which house this was when we were doing our rounds of Lexington and Concord... it might be the Hartwell Tavern again.

Photograph 39

This was a room in the Hartwell Tavern, Lincon (between Lexington and Concord on Battle Road), Mass. The previous picture is also of Hartwell Tavern.

38. - Herbs & Window

Photograph 38

Today we went to Lexington & Concord and visited the Minute Man park. Lucky for us it was the 50th anniversary of the park and every single old house was open to the public, even the ones not normally open. Here's a photo of one that's usually open anyway, though.

I have no idea when/where I took this. On vacation, somewhere.

36. - The Edge

Photograph 36

This Indian (from India) woman was having her photo taken and was off the path looking over the edge. I guess she didn't want to back up to far for her photo!

29. - Tree

Photograph 29

This is a picture I took when my family (not mom) hiked down the Narrows, Zion.

28. - Cave

Photograph 28

This is looking down and out a cave in the Narrows, Zion. Left is my brother, right, my dad. The cave didn't go back really far but it was pretty cool. You had to climb about ten feet up to get into it. We got pretty dusty. Someone had propped some driftwood up to the cave entrance so you could climb up & in. Dad and I were a bit behind the boys so we saw them from halfway down the canyon up in there. No bats, thank goodness.

27. - The Fruita Schoolhouse

Photograph 27

The Fruita (UT) schoolhouse was opened in 1896, supported and payed for by the Mormon settlers. It had anywhere from 8 to 26 students attending classes at any one time. The building also served for as a community meeting place, a sunday school, and Saturday night social meeting place. - According to the little sign outside.

26. - Red Flower

Photograph 26

I found this flower at Zion near Big Bend. By the way, I think a lot of photos from now on are going to be from vacation....

25. - Kneisel and Anderson

Photograph 25

This half of the store was closed, I took a photo in the window. It reminds me a bit of I Spy.... I like window photos, there's always a lot going on.

24. - Ravens, Lovers

Photograph 24

A couple look across Bryce. Aw, how sweeeeeet.

My brother approves of this one in B & W.

23. - Hiking the Narrows

Photograph 23

My father hiking the Narrows (Zion). The photo was almost black & white to start with, so I changed it. My brother insists it was better the other way, so here it is un-black & whited as well. I like it better in B&W.

UPDATE: My Dad just agreed with my little brother, so I'm going to switch them so color is on top, B&W on bottom (smaller). I would take it out but now you probably want to see it in B&W as well. Dad says that it looks cooler because it looks like a B&W photo, even though it isn't. Oh, and please note my dad has my little brother's shirt in his left hand.

22. - Zion

Photograph 22

This is a Photo of Zion. M-hm. Yup.

21. - Sunset Over The Grand Canyon

Photograph 21

Title says all. This photograph faded a bit when I put the watermark on; it used to be a tad darker.

20. - Little Old Man Photographing Rain Over The Grand Canyon

Photograph 20

I can't imagine getting this title any longer. Perhaps "Little Old Man Photographing Rain Over The Grand Canyon At Noon 
While His Wife Waits For Seats In The Diner 
And A Teenage Girl Takes A Photo Of Him, 
The Little Old Man Who Is Photographing Rain Over The Grand Canyon At Noon 
While His Wife Waits For Seats In The Diner And a Teenage Girl...." 
You get the picture. 
And no, I have no idea if his wife was waiting for seats to eat or even if he has a wife.

19. - Lake Powell & Little Sister

Photograph 19

She was actually sulking because she had to ride in the back seat of the car... but hey, makes a good picture!

18. - Monument Valley

Photograph 18

And, uh, a bush.

17. - Cliff Palace

Photograph 17

Mesa Verde's Cliff Palace

16. - Mesa Verde Window

Photograph 16

Mesa Verde wall and window... I have another photo I'll put up later of Mesa Verde. By the way, this is my photo blog, so most of the photos will be purely artistic.... not large overviews of what we saw. For instance, instead of a large photo showing all of Cliff Palace, I'm putting a window. If you want to see all of it, check my other blog, listed on the side. I hope to post an overview of our trip soon. Thanks!

15. - Smedley's Ice Cream Parlor

11. - Horses

Photograph 11

Driving out from Denver. Horses... the edge is blurry, I took it out of the window of a moving car, but I think it kind of adds to the effect.
