Lovely!
Nice
thanks for the comments, although it's hard to take a really bad picture of the Flatiron Building when the sun is facing the west facade. Here's another one:

The Giles County, Virginia courthouse at Main Street and Wenonah Avenue in Pearisburg was completed in 1836. It was placed on the Virginia Landmark Registry on July 20, 1982 and on the National Register of Historic Places on September 9, 1982. The structure was renovated in 2005.

Wow, Sherman! That courthouse looks like something I'd expect to see in Williamsburg or in the vicinity of Independence Hall, and the photo showcases it perfectly!

...not at fault. Driver ran their traffic signal and I had zero visibility of his vehicle due to a barrier wall and bridge piers. But it still sucks that repair work could take a month for a snapped axle and body work.

yeah, I didn't watch too much of it, but apparently the parade has become more popular in recent years because of Iraq, etc. There was a time when hardly anyone showed up for it. I just took a few pictures toward the end of it at 52nd St.

^ very nice.

it reminds me of an old wedding picture i have somewhere from toledo that has the same style and background, except with corn stalks of course instead of reeds.  i just think that kind of stalky greenery makes for a charming portrait backgound.

The Hub Coffee House, located in the Legal Arts Building in downtown Youngstown, Ohio, once offered up sandwiches, soups and Folgers coffee to hundreds of lawyers, clients and residents for decades.

It's last iteration, the Courthouse Hub Deli and Cafe, lasted only a few brief years before closing. Themes of America once boosted the interior, from iconic American flags draped over picture windows to "USA" placemats. It is largely symbolic of Youngstown's former prominence as a major domestic steelmaker, once home to Youngstown Sheet and Tube, that supplied thousands of workers with a decent wage, security and good American food and coffee.

Perhaps horses from one of the carriage-ride services? They look well-fed and well-enough cared for, but one horse looks as if it could use attention to chafing from buggy shafts, and the shaft and harness-rigging might need some maintenance to fix whatever is allowing it to chafe.

They're beautiful, robust-looking horses.

Enjoying San Francisco now, heading back to LA tomorrow, and then moving back to Cincinnati next weekend. Nothing like two 3-day road trips within ten days.
