The Shapes and Spaces of West Main Street

The weather yesterday was exceptionally beautiful. It was cool and sunny and it is most definitely springtime! I thought I would take a walk with my camera on West Main Street yesterday afternoon to explore and enjoy the weather as well as to continue working on my Shapes and Spaces of Charlottesville project. I used both of the lenses I have for my Mark II – a 5omm and a 24-105mm. West Main Street has been one of many places on my photo bucket list for Charlottesville. I actually drove home through the back neighborhood off of West Main that leads into Preston Avenue. It has been a really long time since I had been that way and I found it really interesting! Winding, small streets with old homes.



The following image has a mosaic mural that reads,

“Everythin you need in life is streaming towards you.”

I liked the juxtaposition of the harsh modern corrugated metal fencing and the fresh natural irises. It was striking and different.

And as usual, I could not pass up a couple images of gas meters…. The last one I photographed looked like a caged heart (see The Shapes and Spaces of Downtown).

Make sure to check out the original inspiration behind this “Shapes and Spaces of Charlottesville” project – The Shapes and Spaces of Belmont. I did a photowalk with the Charlottesville Photography Initiative and figured that a photo project featuring different parts of town was right up my alley! It is a great way to discover new things and places around town. Charlottesville is so much more interesting to me now that I am taking these walks with my camera.

Thank you for stopping by and reading my post! Where should I go next in town?
