I was near downtown today when the sun began setting. It pays sometimes to keep the gear in the car.
Happy Friday everyone! I just finished a shoot for a local architect that designed the rooftop for the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum. If you haven’t been, you should really check it out. And if you’re traveling through the Shenandoah Valley, check it out. It’s a major upgrade from their location on the Old Town Mall and it’s really only one short block from the mall anyway (there’s even a parking lot situated right beside it). If you need an excuse to go, it’s free tonight from 5-7:30 as part of First Friday in Old Town Winchester.
Are you tired of the aerial stuff? I’m not and won’t be for a long while. I think subconsciously I decided to shoot the race this weekend to make sure I still knew how to use my DSLR! Along with so many things, another cool thing about the aerial viewpoint is that I can be in the images and not draw a lot of attention. It’s kinda like “Where’s Waldo.” Maybe I should make a cameo in the aerial images and make you try to find me.
I was shooting for a job today and, although I know this is very novel to many people right now, sometimes I just want to get my shots and move on. I enjoyed talking to a lot of people today though about my work and this new perspective. It’s quite the buzz around town – literally!

There’s been quite a lot of change in the downtown area of Winchester (aka Old Town). One of the biggest changes, in my humble opinion, is the recent move of the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum. Not only did it move off the Loudoun Mall (really only 1 block away), but it moved into a huge new building. The former space offered a fun learning space for kids, but the new space is enormous and it ads a roof-top component! It’s really cool that this downtown staple was able to find a space to expand its offering. Can’t wait to check it out.
