Wednesday Doorway

This weeks doorway is Beacon Hill Plumbing and Heating on Myrtle Street. An added bonus was the friendly dog who came out to see who was taking pictures of his store.

Baseball on a Hot August Night

Three young fans intently watching the action on the field. Unfortunately the home town team fell to the visiting Rochester Red Wings 5-3; but it was a great game.

Monochrome Monday

Cannons on the ramparts of Quebec city. Unfortunately, trees have grown up pretty much obscuring the view of the St. Lawrence. Click here to view other Monochrome pictures this week.

Skywatch Friday

We had a near tragedy this past week when the platform two window washers were working on gave way on the 37th floor. Luckily they were rescued by the Boston Fire Dept. This window washer is only on the third floor; he told me he has never gone higher than the 24th floor. The only way I would get that high in a building is in an elevator.

Fort Independence Cannon

Cannon seen from a few cannon rooms away. As you can see most of the cannons have been removed from the fort. Apparently most were melted down for scrap during the Second World War and the ones currently in the fort are replicas. The holes in the floor were for the carriages used to swivel the guns. Each gun was manned by a 12 man team that lived in a room behind the cannon.

Below, you can judge the size of the cannons in comparison to the two people in the picture. The photo on the right is a full side shot of the cannon.

Monochrome Monday

Meet Roy, he volunteers as a Civil War interpreter at Fort Independence on Castle Island in Boston. He says he came to his love of theater because of his English teacher, Miss Rose. And that led him to doing what he does now, combining his interest in theater with his interest in history and the American Civil War.
