Fredericksburg Hardware

August 17, 2011

I always wanted to find out who owned Fredericksburg Hardware and ask them if I could use the interior of the building for a grungy portrait session. I guess I missed my chance. To see what it looked like back in the day (and by back in the day, I mean last year) check here. Perhaps one of the new tenants would care to purchase a print?

I have to admit, I moved to the area well after this building had fallen into disrepair. But, it’s a bit of a landmark on William Street. The current plans have it being torn down sometime this year and replaced with luxury townhomes. I’ve tried to photograph this building a number of times, but they always turn out a bit too abstract. I don’t know how I feel about the townhomes yet, but to be honest, the space needs to be used.

I spent some time walking around the building, shot a few frames, and found some unlikely fruit. Thanks for stopping by!
