Photo Walk

With overcast skies and a chilly wind blowing I decided it was a good day to get caught up on a few tasks I have avoided during the last few months, like archiving my photos. Lo and behold I discovered that I had completely neglected to share the photo walk I took on the last Sunday in September. So I hope you enjoy these.

I had met up with four other photographers for a photo walk through the Freemason District in downtown Norfolk. Hanging back from the group a bit I was happy to capture this reflection of the others in the side of a docked ship.
Weekend Reflection Submission
It was a beautiful afternoon with the long shadows and gorgeous reflections off the water.
 We were not the only once enjoying a peaceful Sunday afternoon.
You know the art is most important when the photographer isn't afraid of a little dirt or odd looks from passerby's.
As it was almost October I was a bit surprised to see the Japanese Gardens still had a few flowers.
 Sorry this one is a tad fuzzy, but this doll is just too cute not to share.
 The buildings in this area of town all have such a warm historical feel to them, both old and new.
 Am I crazy or do pumpkins on a doorstep that just ooze warmth?
 Of course I couldn't pass up this tower, isn't it just amazing?
We did get a few odd looks along our walk. But that is okay, gives me a chance to capture some interesting human shots.
We ended our walk with refreshments at Hell's Kitchen. Overall it was a very enjoyable Sunday afternoon with some wonderful women.

Oh Nita, I'm SOOOO glad you "stumbled" back onto these photos, they were awesome and I'd have HATED to miss them.

Well, I'd never have KNOWN I'd missed them - - - but you know what I mean.

As always you captured great pictures. That's an interesting tower and the little girl playing.
I was a little confused by your mention of "Hell's Kitchen". I thought that was in New York City.

Wonderful photos of your walk! I do love the ship reflection photo. So clever. How did you think of that? The little red head was darling, lost in her own world of discovery. Well done!
