Washington, D.C. ~ The featured photo in this set is the “Friendship Archway,” a Chinese gate at H and 7th Street. All photos were taken in the historic Chinatown area, east of downtown along H and I and 5th and 8th street.
Waxahachie, TX ~ The Ellis County Courthouse is located at 109 S. Jackson St, Waxahachie, TX 75165. This historic structure has been fully restored and is operational. You’ll need to visit in person to see the amazing architectural details, such as the gargoyles, carved faces on the columns, and granite stone at the base. If you stop by during the day you can even take a free tour. * These photos were taken in the winter of 2017.
Waxahachie, TX ~ One of my favorite places to be! The people are nice, the stores are unique, and there is history at every turn. Each building has an original style and most are very well maintained. Anyone who loves antiquing should consider a weekend visit.

Montréal, Canada ~ Montréal is a vibrant city, mixed with historic and modern architecture, and equally diverse citizens. Our stay here was brief, but we fell in love instantly. These photos were taken on a stroll one afternoon around the city. I usually jot down the names of the streets and major locations, but I was having too much fun sightseeing, and completely forgot to take notes.

New Orleans, LA ~ If you visit New Orleans, you will most likely end up in the French Quarter at some point. These photos are a glimpse of the storefronts and residential areas of the Quarter. What is hard to capture in photos is the incredibly tight space in which things are situated. I had to squat across the street and aim my camera to the sky in order to get a full shot of most buildings. Many of these […]

Boise, ID ~ While I lived in Boise, the state capitol building seemed to be under constant construction. It may have since been fully renovated, but somehow I doubt it. Another impressive aspect was the town’s cleanliness (no sarcasm implied; it was unusually clean). I have yet to visit a comparable city, except perhaps for Des Moines, IA. Finally, if you are ever in the neighborhood, you must visit the Egyptian Theater. It was established in 1927, and has been beautifully maintained. […]
