When many people think of Ohio, they think of large cities
surrounded by flat farmlands stretching for miles and miles.
But the eastern region of the state is part of Appalachia
with a geography of steep wooded hills and narrow rocky
hollows. Such places have been preserved by Hocking Hills
State Park. Here's an image I made back in 1978 when
I first began taking landscape photographs.

The Quadriga is a Neo-Classical sculpture
erected in front of Charleston Place Hotel.
It depicts a group of bronze horses that symbolize
the role which horses have played in the city's long history,
including the carriage rides that tour
the old districts of Charleston today.

I made this image of a Roseate Spoonbill on film
nearly 40 years ago when I first caught the photo bug
and was learning photography. I have always loved
birdwatching, so on one of my trips to the Everglades
I brought a camera along to try capturing
the interesting bird life there.

Within the Historic District, old delapitated buildings
are saved for future renovation. This single house
is being moved to make room for yet another new hotel,
constructed to accommodate the increase in tourists visiting Charleston.

This 4th century basilica sits atop the Caelian Hill in Rome,
overlooking the Roman Forum and Colosseum.
It was built over a complex of Roman era rooms decorated
with well preserved frescos that can still be seen today.
