While down at the river, Geoff and I were trying to capture some light trails of the cars coming down Fall Hill Ave. No such luck, so I started looking around for something else to shoot. Glad I did. This is one of my favorites of the project so far. I think it’s got a kinda surreal graphic quality to it.
I’ve been meaning to get a shot of the river for some time now, so I called Geoff up and convinced him to trek down to the river with me in the freezing cold, in the middle of the night. It actually wasn’t that hard of a sell, to be honest. Right up Geoff’s proverbial ally. I didn’t want to shoot the river as it’s traditionally shot: picturesque, gorgeous late evening light, idyllic. I hoped to tell a different story, a quieter story, if that makes sense. I’d love to wax philosophical about the importance of the river to a community like Fredericksburg, but you’re here for the pictures, right? Thanks for stopping by!
It’s a simple, common image, really. But having spent four years of my life in Colonial Williamsburg, I am always struck and amused by the juxtaposition of the old world and the new. I wonder if anyone ever plugs their T.V.s into these things right there on the street.
As far as light goes, it doesn’t get better than Caroline Street around dusk. The trees that line the streets create this really magical, diffuse light.
