Out and About, Downtown, Plymouth, Massachusetts, USA

The National Monument to the Forefathers in Plymouth was formerly known as the Pilgrim Monument. It was opened in August 1889.

These two images are one of the four seated granite figures that encircle the standing figure of "Faith." It looks delightfully dramatic when overexposed on a cloudy day.

Note how simply the eyeball and pupil were fashioned. Yet, it still creates the illusion of great depth and realism.

This brick walkway goes to the top of Burial Hill in downtown Plymouth. I love walking on the curved, scooped bricks that have settled into place over the past years.

Graffiti is not common in Plymouth but, this display off the beaten path has been here for a while. I'm not exactly sure what it means but, it looks pretty cool to me.

The golden dome on the Post Office building in downtown Plymouth is visible against the background of Plymouth Harbor and Rocky Hill on this gray day. We don't see many gold domes around here. It has been a mild winter season so far - no appreciable snow/ice and few days with bitter cold - but it is only December........
