Richmond in Pictures III

From KJHburg's images, I know there's activity downtown so it seems odd, in a bunch of photos there are only a few people in the shots.  Looked back at them on my computer, not the phone, and there are a few people, but still very few people.  I looked further up the list and see that a few images I submitted also had no people so strange how that works.  When I'm downtown it feels like people  are everywhere, but when the shutter goes off, they disappear.

I really don't like to get a lot of people in my photos.  Those photos were done on weekday mid morning and it was very humid out and threatening to rain.

A great, recent nighttime drone flight over downtown Richmond. There are especially good views of the new Dominion tower:

Dominion tower in red white and blue looks good.  What building in Manchester, near the end of the video,  has 3 blue vertical lights?

I believe that apartment building is called the Terraces?  It’s the newish apartment building that looks like an oceanfront hotel. Looks better at night (not too bad in the daylight).

This clip reminds me of the "Flying Scene" from the movie, "Superman." 

One thing I'm noticing is that our streets downtown seem darker than in other cities. Perhaps its the tree cover, but it seems like increasing the light would make downtown Richmond feel more vibrant.

This link from Richmond city watch and was from June - I don't see where it was already posted.  If it's a duplicate let me know and I'll delete,  just wanting to see new any photos.
