The Big Snow of 2017

We had a “Big” snow in Richmond back in January but it really wasn’t. It was a nice taste of Winter but with the weather the way it is going right now, spring should be around the corner. I write this February 21st and it has been in the 60’s recently. This snow was much appreciated as I like to walk in the city while the snow is there. It wasn’t a big snow so it didn’t last too long, luckily it stayed a few days because it was 20 degrees.

T. Potterfield Bridge

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.

Christmas Tree at the curb

I was walking around the streets of Richmond and came across this nice looking artificial tree already to go but it was mid October when it was at t he curb which through me off. Well now that Christmas is over the chill of January and February are on the way. Not generally my favorite time of the year.

Reflections

Going out after a good rain leaves some wonderful reflections on a lot of surfaces. When the sun breaks through the clouds the light shines and casts a lot of interesting shadows. I  think I want to capture more puddles and light on the future.
