I would like to share with you a few photos that I think are notable. I love taking my camera with me, because it removes the thought "oh, there's a goodie, why don't I have my camera"? My camera now sits and waits patiently for me.
Continuing along from the June 7th post about the unique bookshop that sells rare and used books, I crossed the street to look at what I think is a stunning representation of architecture. The building used to be the original town library, where I use to go to as a kid (when my town library was being rebuilt). It has since has been transformed to be the "Museum of Early Trades and Crafts".
The Museum of Early Trades &. Crafts assists people in understanding and appreciate the trades and crafts practiced in New Jersey from its earliest settlement.
The architecture is stately and elegant. That turret is calling my name. I would love to climb it! Actually, the only turret I have ever climbed was Castle Loma, outside of Toronto Canada, but that's another story. Anyway, if you are ever in the vicinity of Madison, NJ (Morris County), please stop by on Main St. and see the quaint and interesting sights. The shops are great too!
The country side of life: I know after some of us experienced that roaring thunder and lightning the other night, one of the last photos you may want to see is that of water. However, I believe waterfalls are restful and soothing to the eyes and ears. Don't worry, I was not driving while taking these photos. Waterfalls have a key to release the tightness in my neck or the unsettled questions in my head or heart. I begin to feel the flow of the water, and it is soul cleansing for me.
These photos were taken by my Hubby as we were taking a ride through quiet backroads.
So, take a look around your corner of the world, and see with eyes wide open. I am always interested in learning about other interesting points of view.
