Shadow Shot Sunday

This is a model of the USF Constellation; the original
was built in Baltimore in 1797.  I took this shot in June
at the charming Deltaville [VA] Maritime Museum, and just
discovered as I was preparing this post that the museum
was gutted by fire in July.  Among the treasures that were
lost were Civil War artifacts and some beautiful
ship models (including this one, I assume). So sad, 
they've vowed to rebuild—and I'll be back when they do.

[Today is Shadow Shot Sunday. To see more, go here.]


  1. Under fire! And it looks so safe and protected.

  2. Always sad when such treasures are lost. Another reason to love digital photography ~ though the subjects might be gone, being able to save the memories is so valuable.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
