MaryAlice, you will find the shotgun houses on the first 2 streets. You can get Great Pictures on MLK (Lincoln Park). You can should go during the Emancipatin Proclamation. No one will notice you taking pictures.
rpenigma, thank you very much for your helpful pointers! I have always loved these little shotgun houses and would sure love to see more of them. I think "Emancipation Proclamation" may be too busy to get any good shots of the houses though. I've always heard that it's quite a party during this event. I think we'd probably rather go when things are quiet, but thank you all the same. Do you happen to know when Emancipation Proclamation is, by the way?
Thanks again for visiting, and a happy weekend to you! =)

Greetings, Hal, and thank you so much for enjoying this little row of shot-gun houses. I am so greatly pleased that you added it into your favorites and gave it a "like" vote too! Thank you again, and I'm delighted that I could share this scene with you here on Pano.
Very best regards from Georgia,
As I have been though your photos at least a couple of times and find them to be really special. ADDING to Favorite Photographers Have a super day, Hal
Hal, you are super kind! My goodness, I am so flattered, and thank you very much for your many generous words. I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday as well. :)
All the best,
Hello Mary Alice, ...Just came across your picture depicting the ' shot gun houses ' in your part of the world. Very interesting. I have never come across the term before...even though I did live in the States for a while . I am a bit wiser now. I did see lots of houses constructed of wood while I was there....and that is something we don't have on the Island.....we are all bricks and mortar.....and local stone , as is my house.....Maybe it is because we are a lot further North than you and it can get quite wet and very windy at times, being a little island stuck in the middle of a quite often, stormy sea.
Thoroughly enjoying your gallery.....some great pictures....and your comments are very enlightening.
Again, stay happy......John [manxman069]
John, I, too, have been exploring your gallery again this evening. I feel like my existence over here in this space of the world is so entirely different from yours. Oh my word ..... just look at your surroundings. It is all utterly amazing. I struggle to get away from people, crowds, cars and noise, and you are living right in the middle of heaven! I bet even the air you breathe is beautiful! I long to run and run over the green hills and hear the ocean, feel the wind, and explore every inch of that fantastic island out in the middle of seemingly nowhere. The summer farmhouse on that tiny island.... Oh, how dreamy. The lighthouses, the hills, the old castle ..... it's all like something straight out of a fairytale. Here I am over here surrounded by cars, houses, loud people, etc. Though my gallery is filled with nature and beautiful places, they seem small in comparison to the grandeur you have all around you! I am not jealous, but I must tell you that you are very, very, VERY lucky to be where you are. Do not take such a place for granted for even a second. Think of this little girl who would give anything to spend even a week in your surroundings! Wow, you lucky, lucky man! Thank you for allowing us even a peek into your paradise! Incidentally, I'm glad you've enjoyed learning about the Shotgun houses in our area, and the many homes constructed of wood. Yes, they are everywhere. Thank you also for your generous words and for making me smile. I wish you well, and look forward to talking to you again soon!
Hello Mary Alice. Wow !...what a fabulous message. Thank you so very much. I have to say that you have a way with words that easily equals your skills with a camera.
I also have been looking again at your photos, with the picture titles contributing greatly to them. I study a good picture closely and when enlarged, a wealth of detail is revealed. You definitely have a way of seeing things just that little bit differently.
I am Manx. The Manx people...the people of the Isle of Man....descended from invading Vikings,
[ who then settled here 1000 years ago, ] and the indigenous Celtic inhabitants of the Island. The Viking influence left a lasting legacy which is very apparent today.
The Island....a self governing nation with it's own laws and Gaelic language has a facinating history......also a history of myth and folklore....of witches and the 'lil' people...of haunted castles ..and much more.....far too much to relate here.
I look forward to maybe chatting with you again. Thank you once more for your friendly message. Sincere greetings to you from the little Isle of Man. Again....stay happy.....John
John, I must say, I am pleasantly intrigued! Thank you for telling me more about yourself, the island, and it's inhabitants! Manx people, Vikings, witches, castles .........Oh my! We need to just sit down and talk a while! Do you speak the Gaelic language? How long have you been there, and what do you do there? What brought you there, and were you originally from here? Questions, questions, and still more questions! Look what you have started! Do you celebrate Thanksgiving over there? ( kidding) Thank you so much for your kindness. I'm delighted that you enjoy my photos and quite flattered by your many compliments. Photography is just a way of expressing myself and sharing the things that I find most beautiful or enjoyable in my life. Nature, animals, things from the past, things that intrigue or excite me! I'm so happy that you seem to enjoy these various things as well. Again, I thank you for stopping by, and I wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend on the Isle of Man! Cheerful greetings to my Manx Man friend from a far,
