A standout on a corner of King Street, this little church has been here since the 1800’s. I love to drive by it and admire its stained glass windows, weathered steeple and intricate architectural details. The parish is building a new, very large church across the street. I hope this little gem will still be adored and used when it’s all said and done.
Three Pictures Can Tell A Story
Won't you join me for a photographic series of trios taken in and around historical Leesburg, Virginia?

One thing we’ve got going for us here in Leesburg is a literal hotbed of Civil War era history. I’ve driven past the Union cemetery at least a thousand times on my way to the gym, library and piano lessons, but have never stopped to go in until yesterday. It is a serene and beautiful place with gravestones covered in moss bearing names from the 1800’s of men and women who lived during an uncertain time of our country’s history. Enjoy a few shots from the Union Cemetery, Leesburg, Virginia.
And a bonus photo because this falcon was an ideal model, so I had to.

This farm building, with it’s gorgeous worn wood, towering silo and combination of photo ready textures, greets me every time I enter and exit my neighborhood. Though it’s original windows have been replaced and half the metal roof blew off in a terrible wind storm a few years back, certain elements like crumbling brick covered in creeping vines are original to the structure. I’m thinking a family photo shoot is in order. What say you?
