Avinu Malkeinu (5770)

© (2009/5770) Photographs by Vicki Polin

Hear our prayer
We have sinned before Thee
Have compassion upon us and upon our children
Help us bring an end to pestilence, war, and famine
Cause all hate and oppression to vanish from the earth
Inscribe us for blessing in the Book Of Life
Let the new year be a good year for us

Driving Around From the Conowingo Dam to Mount Washington, MD

Music: Say what you need to say

I tried to photograph the eagles hanging around the Conowingo Dam, yet I needed a much more powerful camera.  Towards the end of the day I ended up at the Mount Washington Arboretum.

Licked By A Cow (Stevenson, MD)

© (2009) Photographs by Vicki Polin

I took a detour on my way to the store. The cows of Stevenson were right by the fence so I stopped to take a few pictures. The problem with getting close to animals is that there always seems to be at least one that will want to get up close and personal.
