nail17. A Shamrock—Ok, not really. But St. Patrick’s Day nails, and my lovely green sweater. But mostly, my Claddagh rings! My first gift from my husband is the silver Claddagh, and my wedding band is Claddaghs as well!

photo2220. Diptych—technically no, it’s not. But it’s a really cute selfie, so I’m letting it pass! Laylabug climbed onto my back that night and silliness ensued.
daffy21. Spring? This poor Daffy! Since Mid February It’s had alternating 80 degree days, snow days, rain days, and now a crisp coating of ice! I checked on it the next day, and after defrosting, it was like new!!
phototree22. On Their Terms—I love how beech trees hold onto their leaves through the winter. They do autumn on their terms, and refuse to drop their leaves, adding interest to winter roadsides.

A Year on the Appomattox

This idea came to me yesterday as I was wandering around Old Towne Petersburg, looking in vain for a broken beer bottle to photograph. A challenge on a photo site was for GLASS, I had a good idea– and, well, it didn’t happen because of all the wonderfully exciting changes in Old Towne. However, these positive changes are taking away all my tried and true, go-to locations for old, broken, cracked, peeling architecture. A good thing for the community! But for my eye?

I ended up at the park near the river, because the inhabitants of Petersburg seem to have been very good about tossing their trash in the proper location. I started shooting some images of the river—a dull, cloudy day, with the smallest hints of snow left over, and very little else going on.

For the next year, I am going to return to this location (weekly?) and really explore it. I won’t make any hard and fast rules, other than these shots will be from the banks of the Appomattox, (or within shouting distance) and I will probably limit myself to within an easy walking distance of the parking lot in either direction. This map, below, shows about where I will visit.

What do I expect to shoot? We will have to find out over the course of the next 52 weeks.
