Today I was getting ready to set up a post along an interesting path, leading to some of the rocks on the James River. Of course, the orples have been haunting me, and pouting because they didn’t get to join us on our walk around the block in Richmond on Saturday and I’ve been ignoring them ever since. So before we stroll the entire path, let’s give the orples time to catch up. It appears they’re stuck in some tree roots along the path. They’re helping each other across, so we may have to wait for the next post … “A path to the river’s edge“. Those silly little orples just have to come along sometimes, or they bug me to death.
Stay tuned, we’ll visit the river when Olivia and Oscar get untangled and can keep up with the rest of us. I wouldn’t want to leave them behind.
Street Scenes in Richmond, Virginia … June 2, 2012
Today went by so quickly. It was so beautiful after last night’s storms, I went to Richmond with the intent of hunting down a few murals to share, which I did. Not many though, and I’ll post those shots another time. For now, I thought I’d invite those who care to join me, to take a walk around the block. These shots are of a couple of older residential streets, one of which is a 4 lane street, divided by a median strip. The main drag is across from the Richmond Museum of Fine Arts. I didn’t take a photo of that building, since I’d have needed a panoramic lens to fit the entire building in. Not to mention, my camera kept cutting out on me, so I didn’t get anywhere near the number of shots, I’d hoped to take. But something is better than nothing. I did manage to grab enough takes to fill a couple of posts on varying themes in the coming days. So please, put on your walking shoes and come along.
I took a lot of detail shots of some of the architectural features on these homes, which I’ll post soon, plus a few murals, taken elsewhere, and a few landscaped lawns that accompany some of the houses shown here. I’ll divide them up and divvy them out a little at a time. No need to overwhelm anyone. But for those of you that have never been to Richmond, Virginia, I thought you might enjoy an overall view of a typical city block for the time being. This is what the street looked like today:June 2, 2012.
