Thematic Photographic 88: "What I Did On My Vacation" v.1.0 - On the Not-Hot Seat

"Logging On"
Blowing Rock, NC - February, 2001 (Click to embiggen)

The travel theme continues at Thematic Photographic this week with a reprise of Thematic Photographic 83, "What I Did on My Vacation". Sadly, it's not like I take so very many vacations -- in the usual sense at least -- but happily they turn into what my son calls "photographic jihads: Shoot everything in sight", so there's not a shortage of material usually. Yes, there will be much from the beach -- specifically Topsail Island. But leading off we'll pick up where I left off in last week's "On the Road" theme. That is, the Blue Ridge Mountains. This is a detail of the Cone Manor in Blowing Rock just after an unexpected snow. I'm not entirely sure, but I think this serves as a bench when it's not under a layer of frozen stuff.
