Riders enjoy the “big dip” (a rumbling 35-foot drop) on the Big Dipper at Camden Park in Huntington, Virginia.
After months of leveling ground, filling holes, planting grass seed, removing stumps, and spreading mulch, I am finally (mostly) content with my yard.
A few more images off my camera roll that I thought were worth sharing!
I rediscovered a few photographs from yesteryear while sorting my camera roll.

Read on to see my “Elevator Button” mosaic.
The excitement of riding an elevator typically passes with childhood. I distinctly remember jostling with my sister or cousin to see which of us would get to press the elevator button. My mother or grandmother would usually reprimand one of us for pressing the button out of turn. At the time, I was never sure why pressing the button mattered so much – but pressing the button definitely did matter. Children still rush to the control panel to press the button first. I suppose elevators seem to possess an almost majestic quality to children.
As the decades have passed, I find elevators bring more a sense of relief than adventure. I’m not so concerned about pressing the buttons nowadays, but I do still always offer to press the buttons for other passengers.
I guess that’s because I was always good at pressing the buttons – much better than my sister anyway.
Uniontown has quite a few tall buildings for a town of only 10,000 people, making elevators necessary throughout downtown. While you can’t ride every single elevator, the kid in me found out yesterday that you can still press the buttons on quite a few.
And, yes, I did get briefly stuck in one. Thankfully, I don’t have claustrophobia or agoraphobia. I did press the hell out of the “Door Open” button, though.
