Star Spangled Banner

This is Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. It is one of the sites of the Battle of Baltimore, and where the Star Spangled Banner flew. Francis Scott Key got the idea for the song which would become our national anthem from a boat in the harbor. This flag is a reproduction, the original is in the American History Museum in Washington D.C.

Greek Festival

The smell of cooking lamb is in the air here at St. George’s Spring Festival in Bethesda, Maryland. It was a wonderful day celebrating the season.


Spring Farming

It’s time to start getting ready for summer. This tractor is primed and ready at Butler’s Orchard in Germantown, Maryland.

Glen Echo Neon

My mother remembers going to this Maryland amusement park as a child. Now it is a quiet place to walk, sit, read or take an art class. The signs, the carousel and a few other reminders remain from its past life.
