Looking Out, Fort Morgan

During our trip to Gulf Shores in 2004, we took a drive to Dauphin Island which required hopping on the Ferry. This scene is near the dock in Fort Morgan, Alabama. The bird ignored us while searching for his next meal.

Church of St. Mark

This small church caught my eye because of the two castle-like towers and also its interesting design. It is located near Highway 72 in South Collierville, TN.

Central Station, Memphis

Built in 1914, Central Station, now renovated, hosts the "City of New Orleans" train on its way from Chicago to the Big Easy - and back. It is located in South Main Street. Some of the old-time electric trolleys roaming though Downtown came from my native country of Portugal. Maybe I even rode on one of them in my old college days...they do feel like old friends.

Road to Jersey III

This is another work based on roadside photos taken during one of our long drives to New Jersey. My best guess is this place is probably in Virginia.
