When I was coming home so late the other night, I got the idea to see if I could get a night shot of the military memorial at the courthouse. I was a little nervous...it was late...I was stopped in the middle of the road between the courthouse and the jail....guess something startled me because I apparently made a jerky movement just as I snapped this first one! The second is better but shooting from the car wasn't the best idea!

When I lived in Corsicana, I drove by this field almost every morning on my way to work. I saw many wonderful sunrises! But I wasn't a CDP blogger then and had never heard of Sky Watch Friday, so I usually made it to work on time! LOL. This particular morning I just had to stop and shoot a few.

I think the first one has the right idea.....it's so hot here that the only way to stay cool (other than inside with the air conditioner) is to stay wet! I've certainly used that trick! But the 2nd porker has fairer skin and seeks to avoid sunburn by staying in the shade and enjoying her mud pack!
Spotted on a farm on the western outskirts of Corsicana.

I've been wanting to shoot this interesting entry way to the bowling alley for some time and waiting to catch the morning light/no cars/no banners posted on it, etc. Yesterday I decided the time had to be right, because I could use it for my "B" post on ABC Wednesday!

I promised a better photograph and a bit of history on this lovely church. Because of it's location between downtown and the county courthouse, it's a bit difficult to find a spot to take a good photo without a lot of other interference (or getting hit by a car!). Hope you get the general feel. The lovely trees and the brick street in front really complement the architecture.
From RootsWeb: Click to see a "Brief History" of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Corsicana.
There's actually quite a bit of information on the history of the Presbyterian Church in general and in Texas as well as how this particular building came to be.

I'm unexpectedly stuck away from home and my folders full of Sky Watch Photos....so I'm running through the CF cards in my camera bag and decided to post this one from a trip last May. This was taken from the airplane window. How many can identify the peak? Bet Raf and Kim and Chuck know! Click the SkyWatch logo above to see hundreds of sky shots from around the globe!

I had a request to show the words engraved on the back of the statue that I featured on Father's Day. I am so glad for the opportunity because I don't think I'd ever read them! Please click to enlarge.
