Default Monocacy Aqueduct

This is the largest aqueduct on the C&O Canal, and was completed in 1833. It is regarded by civil engineering historians as one of the finest engineering accomplishments for its time, to have been built in North America or Europe.

This photo only shows part of it - the only way to get the entire aqueduct is from a boat.

Hi Ted,

Nice capture. I see that you used the Panasonic L-1. What lens did you use?

Hi, Zig

I was out shooting with the ZD 9-18 but when I got to the aqueduct I needed to switch to the Leica 14-150. On the way home I switched back to the 9-18 for this shot, "Hard Times in Beallsville" (I was struck by how good the sign looks ):

That is a great photo. I love photographs of old bits and pieces of an era long time gone.

Default Zig and Sarah - Here's another old building

You have to read the sign. And yes, I did capture the entire shopping center.

If that the shopping center, I'd like to see what the neighborhood looks like.

I really like the old garage. It is nice to take a picture before those old buildings disappears.
