Ok - back to photos from my trip last March to Maryland and D.C. I’d better post these before I forget about them…
Chesapeake City was one of our last stops during our eastern shore tour of historic Maryland Towns. With somewhat narrow streets and mostly wood framed buildings, it was a bit quieter and less architecturally impressive than some other locales. But it more than made up for that with a really relaxed atmosphere and some really interesting stores. I even bought some stuff, which is pretty uncommon.
A bridge, which has Maryland Route 213 running over it, dominates the town. Per Wikipedia, the bridge is 500 feet tall. Needless to say, where ever you are in town, when you look up you see the bridge. (Well, unless you have your back to the bridge.) For being so big, it’s hard to get a clear shot of the bridge. Here’s my best effort from the downtown area:
And here’s a fine old home. Like I said, the bridge seems to dominate the place:
And again with the bridge:
Lastly - a snapshot of the downtown retail area. As you can see, it is a most pleasant and enjoyable place. At least, I found to be very enjoyable with some really nice shops:
As before - these are digital infrared shots, processed in Photomatix with other digital enhancements. A few more shots from Chesapeake City will be coming up…
