Alabama Cotton Fields

Today’s Photo: Alabama Cotton Fields

I was driving some back roads near Montgomery and Wetumpka and ran across some rather large cotton fields just before sunset.  I spent a few minutes in awe of the combine harvesters running back and forth across the fields… and, of course, had to take a few photos too.

You can find some of the most interesting things if you get off the beaten path.  I found this driving Highway 9 in Alabama.  Obviously, it has been around a long time.  Since 1893 according to the sign.  You can only imagine the history for which this building has been present.

Lions and Tigers, Oh MY!!!

A couple years ago, I was able to take a stroll through the Montgomery Zoo.  This white tiger strolled over and plopped itself down right in front of me.  I think it may have been trained to pose for photos.

Today’s Photo: Retention Colors

Sometimes you can find a descent photo in some of the most unlikely places.  I was driving through Eufaula Alabama and had stopped to eat.  Of course, I had not been paying attention to the fact that the rain I had been driving through was clearing.  When I came out of the restaurant, my wife pointed out this sunset.  Not knowing the area, I immediately began driving around and noticed this retention pond situated next to a Wal-Mart.  The reflections were not to bad and the small water tower added to it.

Setting yourself goals and then striving to reach them can be a matter of personal pride.  However, when the goal is much greater than one person, it has the potential of becoming a national goal.  That is what happened during the space race… land a person on the moon.  In 1969, after many failures and successes, the United States accomplished this goal.  It was only through the hard work and ingenuity of those people who would dream that it happened.  However, it was not without extreme danger which is evident on the Apollo 16 capsule that sits in the US Space and Rocket Center in Alabama.

Many adventures begin with a last view of something.  Sometimes it is a wave at family when leaving for college, a last view of the shore while sailing into the blue ocean or the last feel of solid ground under your feet before …Continue Reading Here…

June 20, 1969, the human race was changed forever.  Neil Armstrong took mankind’s first steps on the moon, and big steps those were.  With those steps, Armstrong became an American legend and a hero to every child.  It also capped off the space race between the …Continue Reading Here…

Everyone has special places they like to go.  My wife speaks all the time of her childhood and going to her grandparents’ home.  Unfortunately, mine were gone before I had many memories of them.  One of the reasons I think there are so many fond memories of …Continue Reading Here…

Saturn V Model

After finding a full size Saturn V both upright and lying on its side in stages, this was interesting to see.  There is a whole building at the US Space and Rocket center devoted to the Saturn V and the …Continue Reading Here…

I had the good fortune to spend some time at the Udvar-Hazy building of the Smithsonian Air and Space museum last year.  One of my favorite exhibits there was the space shuttle Enterprise.  I was amazed at how small the space shuttle was …Continue Reading Here…
