Philadelphia: Avenue of the Republic

Just before Christmas I made a trip to the Please Touch museum here in Philadelphia.  I had never been to West Fairmount Park and was surprised to come across a really nice Civil War Memorial.  In researching, I found that it was built in 1897 and is called the Smith Civil War Memorial.  Here are a few shots of this monument to fallen heroes.

Duncansville: Pet Photos

While visiting family for the holidays I managed to grab some shots of the family pets - my mother's cat and my brother's dog.  Although I prefer nature and architectural shots, it was actually fun to capture the animals.  Here are a few shots.
