Effulgent at One Time

“People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.”

St. Augustine

Rephotography: 3rd Edition

Rephotographing buildings is interesting on many levels, as each is altered as needed according to its purpose. The facade changes as well as the people who dwell inside. The Mayflower is no longer an inn but an assisted living facility, the Lexington Depot has been moved across the street, the Natural Bridge Hotel has been torn down and rebuilt, and the Wilmarck House now acts as a church office.
