Found at Grandview Nature Preserve, Hampton, Virginia.
Playing peekaboo with me! One of the many beautiful cats that live at the Yorktown Pub, Yorktown Va.
Colorful rust + classic car … I couldn’t get a good shot of the whole car as most of it was in some serious shadows and parked against an uninteresting building. I love the colors and patterns here though.
This looks like a bedskirt to me.
I made another visit to my favorite spot in Norfolk where the rusting retired channel markers live. They make such pretty backgrounds.
I was so excited to finally see this thing in a parking lot – AND I HAD MY CAMERA WITH ME!!! I had seen it from a distance before …
This is one of those happy accidents as a photographer. I was shooting the pelicans that were perched atop this waterside building one recent foggy morning when suddenly this fishing boat appeared out of the fog, much to my delight.
This is where I discovered the channel markers graveyard and shot my two posts, Retired Channel Markers and Channel Markers Revisited. I wanted to share with our viewers the kinds of places I go to find really interesting shots. One of my favorite places to explore is near the train tracks in any city or small town. I have never been disappointed by the photographic treasures that live near the tracks! When I decided to venture into this neighborhood, I had no idea that these channel markers were stored here. Now I want to find out their history! Stay tuned! I shot this through the windshield by the way so it’s not the greatest quality. I didn’t want to startle the man heading my way by jumping out and taking a picture. And yes I could probably jazz it up with some post processing but other images are already waiting for me there!
A softer, more subtle version this time. And in my college sorority colors, pink and green – thanks Mother Nature!
Old haunted (in my mind anyway!) house near Emporia, Virginia. Happy almost Halloween!
