      Oooooh....this sounds like a fantastic exhibit that would suit my wife and I both with the combination of architecture and photography. This might be a fun little extra diversion on Valentine's Day if we have time.

      another planet, yes it does.

      shiny[and]new, maybe you need to visit Richmond on the James?

      Bruce, thanks, I got to see some of them up close. They're impeccable.

      Richmond on the James?

    9. Ansel Olson 100 months ago | reply

      William Byrd named Richmond, Virginia (on the James River named after King James) after Richmond on the Thames because of a similar hilltop view shed.

      I knew it was called after Richmond upon Thames. I didn't know Richmond VA was on the James. Nice to learn something new. Perhaps I will some day. Although I'm sure I won't make it in time for this particular exhibition ;)
