An outing in Orange

Another recent adventure was to the little town of Orange, Virginia.  Another historic location.  This outing was with my two artist collaborators, and it was a scouting expedition for our next creation.  Since they had their cameras with “normal” lenses, I decided to take my wide angle lens along.  What a great idea that was.  I needed to do some shooting and I loved the perspective that lens gave me  It was another good day!  Here are my favorites.

The University

In the early ’70s I was a student at The University of Virginia for a year of graduate school.  The grounds of the university are so beautiful, and photography there is always rewarding, if not redundant.  Everyone has taken the obligatory photos of the Rotunda, the Lawn, the Pavilions, and with good reason.  They make good images!  In early February, I took a young friend to the grounds who had never been in Charlottesville or at the University.  She flew in from Front Royal, Virginia, less than an hour by air.  She flew in, literally, as the pilot of a little Cessna.   She has taken me flying a couple of times, so now it was my turn to take her on an adventure.  Being on grounds with her, showing her the beauty and participating in photography with her was so much fun.  We walked to the Rotunda; engaged in conversation with a couple of students living on the Lawn;  saw the room that Edgar Allen Poe lived in while a student; ate at The Virginian, the oldest restaurant in Charlottesville; spent time at the UVA Cemetery and on BETA BRIDGE; and saw fraternity brothers delivering bids to their pledges.  It was a fun day.  Here are a few of my images from the day.

Seeing students in khakis and blue blazers took me back to the 70s when everyone dressed this way.
