Among The Fallen Leaves

While my sister was in town we drove down old country roads passing half a dozen cemeteries and a frightening amount of dead deer, to Belmead-on-the-James. It was a bright, warm day; the sort that almost makes you forget winter is nearly here. The perfect sort of weather for taking a look around the old plantation turned school for African American and Native American students established by Katharine Drexel turned deteriorating historic grounds. The property once had more than 40 buildings with separate private schools for boys and girls, but now only three major buildings remain there. Oh if those walls could talk...

  4. @Francine, ha! Not really! I love taking pictures, so it's hard for me to yield control and I still controlled the composition & angle. It was nice to shoot from this angle b/c I can't do it with a tripod by myself, so her help was appreciated to achieve the shots I have envisioned in my mind. :)

  8. I love your hair color! And you look great with a short hair :)) The sunshine looks quite warm and nice. I wish I could enjoy such a weather, too. I'm living in Sweden now and I can barely see sunlight these days XDD

  11. I particularly love the headband. I love the intricacy of old things. So much time and effort was put into the tiniest things back then. It's as though everything was made to be beautiful no matter what it was.

  22. I like how you added the hairband to the short hair, a chic touch!

    There is something about the east coast that has so much more historical charm than the west coast, I love it!

  23. O my goodness! Your headband is a total blast from the past. My mother used to own exactly like it and used to pair it with a denim jacket completely embellished in large diamantes and pearls set in a paisley pattern. 'Fo real!
