Buildings and Other Physical Structures

I had plans to capture some new images for the Lens-Artists Challenge #173, Interesting Architecture. I had the day off for Veterans Day so in the afternoon I drove out to Mountain View Road and into Princeton to capture some images. I captured a few more images while I was in Rocky Hill getting a bacon egg and cheese sandwich for breakfast. When I downloaded the images to my Mac, I realised I had made a mistake. I had somehow…

Is it a facade?

Shortly after the governor of New Jersey issued his executive order for shelter-in-place and closed all the public schools, someone created a community group for my township on Facebook.

Some were organising to create meals for the children who were dependent on school lunches. This is…
