Did you ever notice how different things look when you are not in your daily surroundings? I just returned from my vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. I found it hard to control my trigger finger on my camera while observing such beautiful sights like this one. You just don't see this kind of beauty here in the Mid-West. This was taken at sunset on June 13th 2011 off a small pier on Curratuck Sound.
Votive candles serve as a reminder that someone has been there to say a praye;r for themselves, a friend, a family member or just for whoever or whatever was on their mind. Immaculata Church, Mount Adams, Cincinnati.
