Richmond

A 48 hour trip to Richmond, VA  – also known as RVA – was packed with appointments, visits with family and friends, and good food and drink.  Founded in 1607, Richmond is Virginia’s working capital.  History, arts, entertainment, and dining are just a few of the amenities of this city that I called home for seven years while attending the Medical College of Virginia.

Every moment was filled, and as I ran from place to place, I often had nothing but my cell phone in my hand.  I didn’t come away with many photos, but the memories will sustain me.

I managed to find parking along E Franklin St and walked the block over to Perly’s Restaurant, a creative jewish deli where “bites & dinners are served in this funky, retro eatery hung with family photos”.  Oh my goodness, the potato latkes as an appetizer and the pototo and duck pierogies in mushroom and onion sauce were just divine!

That evening I met with the Girls of August.  We laughed our way through our annual gathering, which always starts with a cosmopolitan.

The eclipse of the moon was a fitting ending to a lovely day.

Thank you for stopping by.  I’m working hard to fit WP into my resist lifestyle!

Outstanding In The Field

My contribution to Monochromia this week.  My contribution with the terrible caption 🙂

Monochromia

Yes, I know.  A terrible caption.

What would you have called it?

Long Shadows?  Horse in a Field?

Just a little #cellphonephotography since I was running a bit behind on posting my Monochromia image.  Can you find the shadow selfie?

Rising Up

Before I head out to do Thanksgiving Dinner Grocery Shopping, I wanted to share a few #Fall2016 photos.  Since the devastating results of the election, I’ve pulled out my camera only once or twice, and because of that, I’ve not really captured the beauty of fall.

I did snap a few though.  Two with the camera. Two with the cell phone.

Can you tell which image came from which camera?

Thank you for being here. Your solidarity in devastation, your words of wisdom, and your hopeful spirits have been soothing to me.
