As I mentioned before, I have really warmed up to Ellicott city since I was a child and my parents would drag me there on weekends. Now that I work in Howard county, Ellicott Citty seems like a bit of an oasis. It’s one of the most picturesque locations within a lunch break’s drive of my office. It has a great many hills, a valley, a railroad, a good amount of meandering streets, a lot of old buildings, a unique historical intrigue, a charm, and an ability to constantly provide a new and more interesting site to picture.
Today’s picture is just a way of seeing an old friend from a different angle. In fact I’ve never ventured up the hills of Ellicott city, where the courthouse lies, to see what else was there. From the eastern hill you can really get a view of the city as it was quite a while ago. You see the mill that brought the town to being and the railroad that brought it into history. You see the slopes of its hills and the expanse of its valley.
I hope someone starts Ellicott City Daily Photo. I would be a reader.
