This scene wasn’t very colorful, so I chose to give the photo a black and white treatment. I also decided to apply pano-sized crop because there were no interesting clouds on the horizon.
The original lighthouse was a wooded structure and built in 1855. A cast-iron tower (with an attractive Greek design) replaced it in 1875. The architect was Thomas Walter, most noted as the designer of the U.S. Capitol’s east and west wings and its current dome. The lighthouse was deactivated in 1942, but it still stands proudly out on the breakwater, surrounded by a lovely park. It was dubbed “bug light” because of its small size.
I have every intention of writing a newsy blog post, but time always seems to get away from me. Maybe next month! I’m doing okay at the moment, but I’ll soon be spending another birthday and holiday without my beloved. I now dread milestones and wish for them to go by quickly!
