Buildings of Richmond
I stayed out quite late in Richmond, capturing buildings and street scenes and the like. The town radiated history, and there are still quite a few photos I want to develop in the future.
What I would do without Google?… Not much I reckon. It took me all of two minutes to get on maps and find out exactly what this spot was. The Landmarch Theatre, located on Monroe park, is so called because it’s ‘one of the best known buildings in Richmond.’ Due to it’s style it was formerly known as The Mosque, and constructed in 1926. The building in front is actually not a cathedral either, it’s Richmond’s Recreation and Parks Foundation building. This photo is a HDR, which I feel brought out the textures of the aged stone walls.
Further into downtown (or old downtown really) is this little area called Shockoe Bottom (click for wiki). I had stopped to eat a delicious pizza, have a couple drinks, then hit the streets again. I’m a fan of the buildings with painted advertisements on the side, and the old time glow topped this one off nicely.
