About the Cover

This month's blog header features Olyphant's borough hall, a really nice building.  It hasn't changed much over the years, and that's a good thing.  In addition to the pretty exterior, there's nice tile work on the inside.

Here's one of the things that drives me insane as an amateur photographer-- electric, cable, and phone wires.  There are so many spectacular buildings out there, but it's tough to get a good and clear shot because wires are in the way.

I've attempted (key word:  attempted) to be creative, to work around the wires, by just shooting the towers, clocks, domes, and steeples.  Sometimes, it works.  I've spared you from seeing the times when it doesn't work.

I've become a little better at smudging the wires out of photos, but my editing skills still need some work.

If you're in the neighborhood, stop by Olyphant and get a good look for yourself.  Walk around town.  Look at the river and the historic old buildings.  Have a pizza or a sandwich.  You won't be sorry.
