I saw this sign on a light pole for a baseball diamond in this park. I thought it would make a good picture. I wish all my photography was "High Voltage".

My son Brad has dark brown curly hair but like to have his sister die it either blond or this color red.

I guess I really like Brad's hair colored red but I couldn't resist having some fun with his red hair. I wish I was better with Photo Shop, this looks pretty amaturish.

This light pole has a power box at its base with the High Voltage sign. I thought the soft curves of the clouds were set off well by the hard straight line of the pole and lights.

I really love signs. This sign is posted at the park. A sidewalk from the park to a residential area crosses the main line of the CSX line.

The CSX and Amtrak line near the park. Down there where the tracks meet is Richmond...

Toward infinity... especially if the train blind sides me while I'm taking the picture.

The park has a part of the east coast flyway next to it. The swampy inlet off the Potomac River attracks many migratory birds.

Every family has its black sheep. Looks like I got a picture of one.

Swampy tidal river areas like this provide habitat for many aquatic animals including these baby fish. Without this type of water habitat fry fish would have no place to escape being dinner for the big guys.

These geese must not have been hungry. There was a mother and her daughter with a bag of bread trying to lure the geese closer. This isn't always a good idea. I saw a hungry goose charge a kid doing the same thing and grab the whole bag.
