Old City Hall

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.

Forgotten shots from the Fall 2016

I was going through some old photographs on the laptop as I am trying to get better at storing and editing them and found these. In the fall time I try really hard to go out every other evening down in the fan or downtown and shoot fall colors and what not.

Bakery Tour

My girlfriend is a baker and pastry chef and loves all things bakery. So I made a bakery tour of the best bakeries in town, my list was 12 by the way, and we set out to hit them all in a day. Horrible idea guys as that will kill your stomach. We ended up taking home things the last few bakeries. We tried a little bit at each one sharing if we had to to save room for the next place.

Great place if you want a biscuit like a above but they started to branch out and make pop tarts which you see below. We didn’t like it as it was mint and tasted like a mint.

Spooky mint pop tart, it was around Halloween.

Proper Pie Company is another really popular place. They have sweet and savor pies and are really enjoyably. There will be a line on the weekends!

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.
