Two Photos at Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center

These photos were taken at Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Visitor Center, which is located at Church Creek, Maryland. I had mentioned this visitor center to my daughter and she said I should stop by, so I did. Then, I felt obligated to take some photos to show my daughter. While I was standing in front of this particular statue, holding my iPhone up and ready to shoot, this young girl ran into my picture frame. I was glad she did. Later I tried to find her to show her the pictures, but I couldn’t find her. (Thank you, lovely girl.)

Thank you for visiting my blog.

    I’m glad she did, too, Helen. I love the intensity on her face. And touching the statues–yes, that is what I would have done! Thank you, lovely girl.

        Thanks, Raj. I like that title!
        I have come to a conclusion that sometime using iPhone is better than using a big camera. But I still wonder what if I had D750 with me at that time…
        Have a wonderful day.

          Most of the times these small cameras or the smartphones create better picture because you are shooting them candid. Moment you hold up your big guns the people generally become alert and their expressions change. Who knows this girl would have given you the totally different reaction. With dslrs whenever I do these kind of candid shots I always do a zoomed shots.

    Wonderful photo, Helen. It looks like a lovely statue, too; she’s grabbing a muskrat, no doubt for food. I can imagine this is an interesting memorial.

      Thank you, Jet. When Harriet slacked off at her weaving job, she would be assigned to check muskrat traps — she started at age 6!
      My daughter and I visited the National African American museum a couple of weeks before I went to this center. I think we spent 4 hours there and didn’t even had time to go upstairs, and less than an hour at this center. Lots to see.
      Good night.

    I love these, especially the first one n which the girl mirrors the statue. Her interest and curiosity are almost palpable.
