Three Pictures Can Tell A Story

I am determined to have another photoblog this year in an effort to make up for last year's dismal attempt. Living in Virginia and on the East Coast has so many advantages. We're within easy driving distance of the Nation's capital. We're only three hours from great beaches. We're just a hop across the pond to Europe. And yet, if I never visited any of those places, I would still have enough photographs to fill a book just by wandering the streets and alleys of my own beloved and charming town.

Won't you join me for a photographic series of trios taken in and around historical Leesburg, Virginia?

Week Five: St. James Episcopal Church, Leesburg

The Hubby and I both have an affection for old stone buildings.  This church, built in 1875, has gorgeous stone, but also stunning stain glass windows and standout red doors. We took our Christmas picture in front of these red doors two years ago.  Another gem of a church in my town.

Week Four: Old Leesburg Post Office

We have two  post offices in our town.  One is newer, larger and closer to my house.  The other is right across from the Historic Courthouse.  I love everything about this building except for its parking situation.  Old brick, beautiful architectural dentil molding, unique post boxes with greek key motif, vintage light fixtures – it’s a treat to mail a package there!  And the staff is friendly and “small town. The building is about a hundred years old, which is new compared to many in our town, but I still love it.  Enjoy
