The Summer has been busy and not busy. I did take a long two week vacation back in May/June but been around since. Lots of nice warm weather has kept me busy after work and I try to be out on the weekends. I have had some time to edit some the photographs and a long rainy day where I was able to develop and scan some black and white film. I took the picture below on the south side of the James River looking at downtown Richmond.

I was out with the photography group in the city January and got this nice long exposure with a bright moon behind some clouds. This is the Old City Hall of Richmond. It is beautiful building and was almost taken down when they needed a new one, thankfully they use it for office space and kept it around.

Was out with the photo group when I shot this. We met in front of the Main Street Station that they are currently renovating and should be nice when they re open a lot of it. Shops and such is what I heard about going in. It is a station also for the Megabus that will take you to Washington D.C. or New York City and beyond.

There was a new bridge that had opened up in Richmond for pedestrians. It is pretty awesome as it has wonderful views and accessible from Brown’s Island. With the city lit up from the Grande Illumination around the holidays it is wonderful to stop and look.

I went to the flood wall this year for the grand illumination. It was a slightly cool night but still non the less nice to be out. Richmond is a great city not to big or small. Hope everyone has a happy holiday!
