July Theme Day - Chimneys




On the first of the month is "Theme Day" for City Daily Photo members. The theme that won the vote this month was "chimneys". I had my chimney photo ready for the theme and on Friday, the 29th, a big storm blew threw our area and knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of us in Virginia, and all the way to W Virginia and Ohio. They were thinking we wouldn't get our power back on until the 7th but thank goodness we got ours back last night, but many are still without.

Today is the Fourth of July and I haven't a post for it since I've been without power so I'll just stick with my Theme Day picture for the day. This is a chimney on the kitchen @ Greenfield. You could stretch this post into a patriotic post since William Preston, who owned this plantation was a Revolutionary War hero!

It is also my son Christian's 15th birthday!

The City Daily Photo portal is down so I can't share the link with you for the rest of the participants, sorry!

Have a happy and safe 4th!

I'll give you a more detailed account of the storm tomorrow.

  6. Cool chimney shot. That big storm set so many people in a hard place. Hope it's not too hot without air conditioning where you are.
