FDR at Peace

All I really knew about Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the little my brain retained from High School history.  Spending time at the museum at the Little White House in Warm Springs, Georgia, I discovered how much this man did for both polio and America in general.  This a photo of a statue of FDR at Dowdell’s Knob near Warm Springs where the president would go to picnic.  I like the way it captures his solitude and I find peace in looking at it…..

The Gateway Arch

These photos were taken in 1988 on a real short weekend trip to St. Louis.  The Gateway Arch is a magnificent structure with awesome views.  The elevator itself is quite the adventure.  It rotates in a jerky fashion as it maneuvers the curve of the Arch.
