  • The bridge (both old and new) and the Courthouse Park, along with Academic Hall are arguably Cape's most recognizable landmarks.

    No tell how many times I've shot them over the years. Here are some examples:


    Civil War statue in 1967 and the replacement in 2009:


    Even if you don't shoot AT the Courthouse, it's a great place to shoot FROM.

  • The possibility of even more "Asphalt-Acres" rears its UGLY-head once again, doesn't it James?

    And, yeah, I use that "label-quote" once again. I like "pullin' it outta the hat" on people. It came from a very-well seasoned---even if he IS younger!---explorer and writer.(I'm sure you still remember it, don't you---James???)☺

    Todays' younger-world is forgetting that one day, they, too, will become OLD.

    And then hopefully at that time, they'll at least look back just once, and ask themselves: "I wonder how this once looked, when (insert your own choice here) was still at this location?"

    Between the combo of James, here, and Fred Lynch---we have a pretty-good chance at ANOTHER "One-Shot-Frony", I think...
