    I am not sure if you got there or not but if you did, thank you for visiting my blog yesterday and for your comments about my Rose-Breasted Grosbeak. I am into architecture today with the Brookville Community Theatre.

  5. I like your photos. Did you take these yourself? If so, you clearly have a very good eye for catching interesting scenes.
