Sometimes you get to the ninth day of the second to last month of the year and realize that your longtime collaborative project is due to run the very next day. You haven’t prepped photos or put together a cohesive plan of any sort, and so you search through the archives of the previous month and come up with the following.
It’s Richmond, Virginia, folks.
First! Here are the fellow travelers for the month:
On a good month I try to have a little bit more intention with these 10-on-10 posts. Consider what it is I want to explore and share with you, and how I want to photograph it. It’s really a “best laid plan” situation on many occasions and perhaps that will be nowhere more evident than with this installation here today.
Last weekend we went to Richmond for some good ol’ fashioned homecoming hoopla at Dan’s alma mater. I took along my little Fuji x100 and of course the trusty fancy phone, but didn’t plan on taking many photos. Having only been to Richmond one time before I was hoping to simply take in more of the city and the history of the region. But as our personal history of scheduling too many things in a short amount of time has illustrated over and over again, we really only had one afternoon to do the sort of sightseeing I was looking for. Thus, here are 10 photos from the haphazard and fast-fast sightseeing excursion that we should probably just go ahead and trademark already.
