Photographer's Note

Hello TE - After a long winter with lots and lots of snow, I'm starting to unbury myself... I can't believe it's been almost 6 months since I've posted a photo here! I recently returned from a trip to Puerto Rico where I had a chance to take some shots that weren't baby photos, for the first time in a while, so I'll get around to posting those soon. In the meantime, I was working through some shots from Maryland and Delaware from last summer, so I'll plow through a few of those first.

This is a shot taken from Annapolis Maryland of a statue and memorial to Thurgood Marshall, the first African American Supreme Court Justice in US history. Justice Marshall gained fame as a lawyer for the civil rights organization the NAACP, and was the lead attorney on the landmark Supreme Court case Brown v. Board of Education, which struck down segregation in public schools in the US in 1954 (I posted, a while back, a couple shots from Little Rock Central High School, where three years after the Brown ruling, a conflict arose over school integration - click here and here to see them).

This statue sits outside the courthouse where Marshall once practiced; out of view are benches with small children representing the plaintiffs in the various suits that were combined to create Brown, the case that eventually struck down school segregation.

If you want to see what I've been up to since I last posted, check the workshop :)
