St. Maries Musica Performance at Historic St. Mary's City

We enjoyed a special concert by St. Maries Musica, a excellent local acapella group at the rebuilt Brick Chapel in Historic St. Mary's City on Friday April 26th.  The chapel was filled to capacity for this intimate concert.  I especially loved "Going Home" based on a portion of "The New World Symphony" by Antonin Dvorak. 

The concert was directed by Krystal McCoy.  Here is Krystal smiling at the choir after one of their songs.

 We were rewarded with a lovely sunset at the end of the program.

Their next public concert is at Patuxent Presbyterian Church Concert: 23421 Kingston Creek Road, California, MD 20619 on May 6th at 7PM.

I've been very busy lately.

I finally posted a little album of photos of the Cherry Blossoms in April 2013 in Washington DC on my Calm Reflections Photography Facebook page  Please check it out!  I was practicing some unique techniques, panoramas and focus stacking in Photoshop.

I want to share two of my recent favorite photos.  Neither of them won the April competition at our local camera club, but I liked them.  Maybe you will too!

The pier photo was taken on an early special morning in February when the mist was lovely and the sky became pink.

The squirrel was outside my window.  He/She was running up and down a maple tree looking for nuts.  He almost looks like he is smiling.
