… and thunder, lightning, some hail. I can’t blame the ghosts downtown when the lights go out now.
Nice picture! That building looks even scarier with the lightning in the background =o
Great capture! I think I know where that location is: old church at Farragut and Davis? My dad used to have his office at Matamoros and Davis, across the street from St. Peter’s Plaza, just one block north of this building. That neighborhood is rich in history!! Wish someone would write a book filled with the background stories of those old buildings — especially the ghost stories! :oO
The Heritage foundation has a lot of these stories. Have you ever taken the downtown trolley tour? They tour the downtown homes and have loads of stories of all the houses, including the 1st Episcopal Church (pictured). I even took the Haunted Trolley tour and the museum director told stories of some of the supposed hauntings downtown. Pretty neat. I love Laredo history.
Fantastic picture, Que Fregados. I love the way the lighting seems to touch down between the stop sign and the church, and how the crisscrossing of the power lines dissects the moody evening sky. Great composition.
Thanks – I asked the lightning bolt to move a little to the right and further back to get it just right!
JK – no photoshop used, but I did snap about 35 pictures before I could capture lightning.
Lala – nice picture. love rain. thunder just a little. let it rain, let it rain…..thank you jesus…
Margarita – That is the thunder that probably left me without light!!!
Erika – Ironic: the day I bought a car it rains, and not only that, it hails, i guess it is like sarcasm. Like when something is very unlikely to happen one says, el dia q eso pase va a llover, o ya llovio. I’ve been meaning to buy a car since forever, and finally when I did, llovio 😦
Very nice ! There is a book named ” Stories that must never die ” is about ghosts in Laredo and cities along the Rio Grande . There is a very good condition copy at Cigarroa Middle . Maybe this building or others have stories to write a book about.
