Our morning was spent visiting Eastern State Penitentiary, a place I've been wanted to visit for years. Good to tick that off the list.
Had a fab day with buddy Steve and his army friend Paul today. So many laughs that times like this make you realize how precious life is. My cheeks are still hurting as I head for bed!

This morning at around 6:30 this door slowly opened up (it rolls up from the bottom) to reveal a pair of pair feet and then ultimately a completely naked man. This was witnessed by 3 of our staff who found the episode hilarious and the resulting image 'bushy'. Apparently the guy walked away from the door completely unperturbed.

Not the best photo but we were so lucky to see this beautiful Bald Eagle perched in a tree while kayaking today.

My green beans are flowering already so just keeping my fingers crossed that the bugs don't get to eat the goodies before me!

Getting prepared for Shark Week at work. We're already running sample shirts for the Discovery Channel and excitement is growing.

Kota Kat Supreme waiting expectantly for his morning treats before I set off for work.

A beer I tried at the Beer Fest called Sweet Baby Jesus! One of Steve's all time favorites but I didn't like it. I was obviously in the minority judging by the tickets collected.

Hanging out in a tunnel on the abandoned Philadelphia Turnpike.

Met with friends after work where Dottie and I had our first ever Mojitos. Delicious!

Dark and heavy skies on the drive home this afternoon, to match my mood after England being knocked out of the World Cup. Boo!

Just after 7am at work some local landscaping crews were stopped by police. There were eventually 5 cop cars but no arrests. We couldn't find out what was going on but we did discover that this landscaping firm employs ex convicts.

At work, we'll watch some football while we're doing some shipping then.

Saw this while out kayaking today, and thought it looked either like a heart on its side or Cupid's bow drawn back.

This screen in production caught my eye, especially since Spain were playing in the World Cup tonight.

I have been suffering at work with intense cold in my office from the AC. I have a pipe that blows down into my office that's about 1ft diameter plunging the temperature in my small room to temperatures that freeze my hands and feet and force me to have an electric radiator turned on throughout the day. Dear Oscar who works the night shift left this note for me this morning. He's diverted the pipe so now for the first time in ages I can experience the temperature relevant to the time of year. No more polar vortexes during the summer, woo hoo!

My photo which was in the Joseph Miller Abstract Show and with a few others was awarded a special merit!
The gallery of some of the images in the show are here:

Dawn breaking at the Manassas Battlefields, with every blade of grass holding up a sparkling rain drop after last night's torrential rain.

After exploring an old water filtration plant in DC we pondered on where to go for a beer.

Had a wonderful morning at the Front Royal flea market. This gentleman carries a folder with every DVD he owns listed, so he can check new purchases. I made enough money to make the morning worthwhile and sold a bike well under asking price to a kid who didn't have enough pocket money. His smiling face made up the payment. And then I donated everything else to Goodwill, they got some good stuff. And of course my home is now minus some more clutter. A great feel good morning!

The macro lens on my iPhone reflected in a silver egg.

Forgot to post my photo last night of my desert. I opened the Reese's bar. Was very tasty paired with a hot cup of tea.

A Nissan RS and a Lamborghini turned up this afternoon at the automotive shop opposite Emblemax. They attracted a lot of attention.

A lovely way to end a Monday. A delicious salmon salad with a glass of wine while enjoying the beautiful summer evening on my patio.

A wave of water rushed towards us from a water ride at Hershey Park. We only got a little wet from it but the effect was incredible.
