Richmond, Virginia is a city teeming with historic buildings, both grand and small. Lately I’ve been trying my hand at capturing the smaller details of these buildings which can be so easily overlooked in the face of the entire structure.
Diagonally across from the sprawling VCU Medical Center is an old street lined with gracious brick and stucco townhouses, now all part of the hospital system. This is a detail from one of them, the William H. Grant House. Built in 1857, it is on the National Register of Historic Places.
I remember this was a beastly hot summer day, and I was imagining how people survived without air-conditioning in the good old days. Dappled sunlight and shade trees could only do so much….
To see another example of shadowy photography, pop over to my friend Sandra’s blog to admire some truly wonderful shots for this week’s challenge.

Have a nice weekend, y’all,
