Blog about an interesting building in your community


As you get out and about on your spring photowalks through your neighborhood, you will find that your photographs become very useful in blogs. My primary interest is in photographing flowers but I also like to photograph beautiful homes and interesting buildings.

This is the old National Geogrphic building. This office building is now owned by Montgomery County, Maryland and houses public service offices. This view is from Main Street in Lakelands, on one of my regular walking routes.

Good Morning Roy, always have the camera ready, you never know what you might see. Whether residential or commercial, having a lakefront property is always a plus. Happy Easter to you and Dolores.

I learned something Roy. I never know anything about the National Geographic building. Interesting that it was so contemporary looking yet they cover many things from the past.

I wonder where they are located now?

Interesting, Roy.  Did the National Geographic Society build and occupy this building at one time?

A good idea Roy. There is so much to photograph around our areas, why not interesting buildings too. NICE!

It is sometimes a good idea to revisit old blogs and reblogs. We might even find some good ideas for new posts
