This is my submission for the Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O.

Ravages of Time

The old brick and concrete bridge piers stand across the James River as a testimony to the ravages of time.  They once provided safe and easy passage across the river and now serve merely as roosts for water fowl and baron outcroppings for pioneering vegetation.


Old Bridge Pilings

These old pilings in the James River must have served as the foundation for a small bridge.  Now they are simply part of the river.


Under the Railroad Bridge

Autumn Morning Fog on the James

photograph of the James River in early morning fogThis photo was taken about 30 minutes after sunrise on an early December day.  Our neighborhood was shrouded in fog and I hoped to capture it hanging over the river.  Normally fog clings heavily to the river but this day was different. I was a little disappointed but enjoyed this view from one of Richmond’s many bridges over the James River.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

There’s a railroad bridge that runs along part of the canal walk in Richmond, VA.  Seeing the bridge reflected in the James River Canal, I thought it deserved some photographic attention.
