Red Headed Woodpecker

I saw this handsome guy while at the park yesterday. He just sat there. He wasn't fazed by me at all; what was more amazing is that there were children playing all around too. He just kept about his work. And believe me he was huge!

Rose Petals

I couldn't believe the colors that roses grow in. Have you ever held rose petals? They are so soft.

Not the clearest picture but I thought it was neat the way the cattail seeds are flying through the air in one big cloud. Le me tell you those things fly everywhere too, and then stick to you. It was fun.

Water reflection

The Childrens Garden at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens reflected in the water.

This cat is trying to get his dinner. He had no luck, the birds were too fast for him.

I love the signs of fall, and the way the air feels so crisp. It's beautiful.

Brick Building

A beautiful building in the Downtown area. I love the look of this building.

Iron Gate

Continuing my theme of "gates" this is a pretty neat gate. It's at Hollywood Cemetary, it's not functional, but it does the great job of adding an accent.

Fallen Gate

I took several pictures of several gates that I found interesting. I posted one a couple days ago, and I will post a couple more in the days to come.

Goodbye Richmond Braves

Today we said "Goodbye" to our Richmond Braves. They are moving to Georgia. I for one am very sad, I LOVED going to the games, and it helps when you're also an Atlanta fan as well. Today they played to a sold out crowd, and by the bottom of the 6th inning we were winning 8-1. It was a great way to go out. Goodbye Richmond Braves, you've given many generations of Richmonder's memories that will last a lifetime.

Fresh Veggies

I was at a Farmers Market on the Southside. It was a very nice place. Fresh veggies are my favorite.

Saturday, July 26, 2008


I love that the silhouette looks like it's holding the flower. Plus I love the colors in the picture the contrast of the black and the pink.

Friday, July 25, 2008


I thought this was interesting. The kids were blowing bubbles, and this one landed on a leaf. I couldn't help but capture it.

A rainbow that appeared after a summer sun shower.

I don't know the name of these but I think they are very pretty.

July 4th

Some pictures from tonight. I'm still trying to perfect the aperature settings, and fireworks were the perfect subject. I don't think they turned out too bad. Let me know what you think.

Short Pump "Pump"

A close up of the Short Pump "pump". Nice and refreashing on a hot day!

Sunday, June 15, 2008

Short Pump Fountain

A shot from the upper level of Short Pump Mall. This is the Original Short Pump pump. This is the center of the outside Mall. Kids love to come here and throw in their coins for a wish, and sometimes even play in the water itself. It is also a very common meeting place for people to come and chat.

New Friend

I was at Deep Run Park today enjoying the hot weather when I came across this cute little guy was sitting eating a piece of bamboo. He was so cute and sweet I couldn't help but take his picture. He didn't seem to mind that I was watching him or taking his picture.

Richmond View

A view of Richmond from Hollywood Cemetary.

Old Saw Mill

An old saw mill I came across today. It was early evening so the sun was in the front. I want to go back when the sun is higher in the sky.

Blue Skies

This is the brilliant blue sky that I sat under today while relaxing. It was so perfect and beautiful. I love this season. In between Spring and Summer, the weather is perfect.

Hidden Path

A nice hidden path at Maymont Park. If you're looking for it you can find it, but if you're not you can easily pass it without a second thought. It's one of my favorite places to go and get away from it all. At the top is a wodden bench where you can rest and gather your thoughts.

Echo Lake Park

On my walk tonight through Echo Lake Park, I thought this tree with pink propeller seeds looked so pretty in the setting sun and the lake behind it. I love warm spring evenings!

Kite Chasers

This is such a cute picture. These little children are chasing a kite. The guy flying the kite was having the greatest time keeping the kite just out of reach of the children.

Some pretty yellow flowers highlighted by a blue sky.

Wednesday, April 2, 2008


I love this little bridge. It's so quaint and peaceful. I love the way the weeping willow hangs down over it.

Spring Flowers

The signs of Spring. I love it. I love the colors, and the feel. It's beautiful.

Friday, March 28, 2008


This is a mural outside of Cuba Cuba. It's a great little resturant that my friend and I went to recently. I love that it's done in all blues.

Patos and Tortugas

I just thought this was so cute. The turtles really add that "cuteness" factor. They were not fazed at all by the comotion stired up by the ducks. This is at Maymont in the Japanese Garden, where there are coi fish bigger than the ducks!

Painting at Maymont

I was at Maymont Park the other day and I came across this lady painting in the Italian Garden. It's amazing to see the things people do, I'm highly intrigued by it all. She had a nice crowd gathered around her watching her paint.

I went to a kite festival this past weekend. It was a great day to fly a kite, it was a little cold, but I think everyone there seemed to be having a good time. This paticular kite is a stunt kite flown by some professional kite flyers performing a show. I believe that these kites would actually pick me up and throw me through the air. I hope to post some more pictures from this weekend! (words of advice when photographying people flying kites; stay away from the people throwing the kites in the air to get them to fly because you get hit....alot! This happened to me TWICE!)

This is another shot from Hollywood Cemetary. This one of a young lady taking a rest from a bike ride through the large place. She's sitting facing the James River and Belle Isle watching a train full of coal go by.

Tuesday, March 4, 2008


I visited Hollywood Cemetary today. It is so beautiful. It was a great day to be there too, with the nice weather we were having. The cemetary is so big, and so elegant. Presidents like John Tyler are buried here. This one paticular statue didn't have a name on it, it just had a simple inscription that said, "to the cross I cling". She was so beautiful standing there in the sun.

The James River with Hollywood Cemetary in the backround.

This is an apartment building that I came across
in downtown richmond the other day. It looks so
grand. I feel so small next to it.

Wednesday, February 27, 2008


This was a stair case that I thought was pretty interesting. It actually doesn't go anywhere. I love how old it is, and how rugged it is. This is also on Belle Island.

James River

The James River from Belle Isle. Richmond looks so peaceful and serene from this vantage point.

Monday, February 25, 2008


Another picture I took of Richmond with the James in the forefront. I took this one from Belle Isle.

Lil' Creek

This is a little creek that I came across in the woods. I liked the way the light was hitting it. This shot reminds me of how serene it was.

A Childs Heart

I came across this at my school today. A child's sidewalk drawing. I thought it captured childhood. I love it. Simple. Colorful.

Colorful Shortpump

This is the back of the Short Pump Mall Entrance. I love the colors of the buildings. The huge crane in the backround is helping build the new gym.
