Finally picked up the camera again

As most of you who know me are already aware, the 2012 summer and fall period had family drama that culminated in a very sad October. Well, I finally used my birthday yesterday to take a little time with the camera. I joined a friend and we went to the Glen Echo Park located near Bethesda, Maryland.

For those who don’t know the history of the site, beginning in the early 1900s, Glen Echo Park was a premier amusement park, serving the Washington area until 1968. Since then the facility has been managed by the National Park Service and now features resident artists, a historic carousel, dance programs, festivals and special events.

There are things happening year-round at GEP but on this particular late-November afternoon, things were on the quiet side. The shadows were growing long with the steadily setting sun. But if you stood still, you could almost hear the sounds of warm summer days and nights filled with laughter and music.
