This swabbie took it seriously!

09.11.09 - Oh Mister Milkman!

Old Richmond Dairy Company building in Richmond, Virginia. It has been converted into apartments.

09.11.09 - Let there be....

Fill in the rest of the title as you see fit. Feel free to leave your suggested titles in the comments. Hint, hint ;)

09.11.09 - Memory

On September 11, 2001, I was on Active Duty in the U.S. Navy. While I was about 100 miles from the Pentagon, I knew several people that either worked there or frequently attended meetings or briefings there, including my father.

He was actually supposed to be in a meeting at the Pentagon the morning it was hit by American Airlines Flight 77. While I was fortunate not to have lost anyone that I knew to that tragedy or any of the September 11 attacks, thousands upon thousands were not so lucky.

I took these photos at the Virginia War Memorial in Richmond the afternoon of September 11, 2009, regardless of what the upload date says here. The U.S. and Virginia flags were flown at half-staff, and the statue in the lower portion of the photo is appropriately titled "Memory".

Nighttime in the cemetery

It's normally a Class 2 Misdemeanor to be in a cemetery at night in Virginia...unless you get permission from the cemetery.

Our photo group of about 30 people did just that and spent over 4 hours wandering around historic Hollywood Cemetery, shooting what we felt like shooting. I like these.

Color in Black & White

Another week brings another "Any Given Friday" where my partner in photocrime and I take turns choosing a theme or challenge.

This week's theme was "Color in Black & White". It wasn't MY pick, but I loved the idea.

Just Because

I haven't put anything up in a few days.

Just monkeying around :)
