Good idea, I'll do that.. I usually have to split them up and cut and paste anyway.

Another failed pan (one of at least three from this spot)

Up and down Main St. I figure the best time to get it would be in the early morning daylight. Also this overlooks the site of Echo Harbour.

I LOVE pictures from this area! Thanks for the tour, Cam. Looks like you had a nice time enjoying the gorgeous day :)

and WOW. The Lucky Strike Building on Tobacco Row, theyve really started to pick up on the renovations! Taking out the old, boarded windows was a tremendous improvment itself!

Thanks and that's not even the half of it! I had to quit because well I have 284 more pics from today at the fair. Of course that number will come down once I see how well or bad pics came out. My camera and night shots are not the best combination.

I'll get started on the rest of it... and tomorrow I'll upload last Sunday!

And I took urban's advice and put the whole thread on text file earlier.

DSCF6535.jpg

I love the angles from 14th St and the view from Mayos Bridge/Island

DSCF6537.jpg

DSCF6538.jpg

The same angle as my submission... wow can't hardly see the Capitol anymore!

DSCF6549.jpg

New islands?

DSCF6550.jpg

DSCF6551.jpg

I like this view too

DSCF6558.jpg

DSCF6552.jpg

Graffiti anyone? <_<

DSCF6553.jpg

The lot I think would be great for a riverfront hotel

DSCF6561.jpg

DSCF6626.jpg

Behind it is a boat access which one day I'll walk down to see.

DSCF6565.jpg

DSCF6566.jpg

The murals are a bad idea now... unless you paint them on! they're all faded now.

DSCF6567.jpg

I never noticed the boat.

DSCF6570.jpg

Triple Crossing... maybe there can be a restaurant on the triangular lot facing the canal called Triple Crossings?

Looking back

So how's the Capitol these days?

I was hoping to see the old windows, but nothing but brick. :(

DSCF6639.jpg

DSCF6640.jpg

Slide a little to the left and hello Old City Hall!

DSCF6646.jpg

And the cameras are looking at me no doubt...

15th St... so they're just going to let the old path grass over?

I like this photo I found off of the Henrico Business web site. Just thought I share. It's different perspective:

Well, it's not working. I'll have to link the page:

Fact of the matter is unless you want to photograph Short Pump Town Center there's really nothing exciting to see in Henrico County. That seems to be the rule for suburbs in general. Beautiful architecture is not their forte.

Like they should, all surrounding counties, including Henrico, acknowledge downtown Richmond as the "center" of the metro area. This photo on Henrico's site is proof of that! So, why not just merge us all together into one singe enity already! The way it is right now is like have a neighbor with benefits!

Actually, there are some decent views of and things worth photographing in Henrico and the west end. Don't believe me? Stand behind the Ipanema buffet in Innsbrook on a clear night and look east. I love that view.
