Lately we've been doing so much writing I feel like I am ripping you guys off by writing a short blurb then posting pictures. But I must remember this is a photography site; it's supposed to be about the pictures. (We do have a few photo projects we're working on this Spring, and then we are into full blown summer photo shoots.)
But those who love the writing don't worry its not going anywhere.
I just wanted to share some highlights from our trip this week to Virginia.
Have you ever watch "The Walton's"? My family loves them.
I can watch a few before I fall into a deep coma. But we actually went to the location where Earl Henry Hamner Jr. grew up. This is the place where he drew inspiration to write "The Walton's". From there he went on to write the screenplay for "Charlotte's Web", "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", and one of my favorites, "The Fox and the Hound".
The women on the right was the fastest talkin' Southerner I met, and had an awesome personality to boot. Also, I tried fried green tomatoes for the first time. Not too shabby!
We got a big bite of history when we went Monticello- home of Thomas Jefferson, writer of The Declaration of Independence. Gorgeous property! Full of vineyards and gardens and rich in patriotic history.
(Just a sweet church.)
(with a sweet door.)
