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.
