While visiting friends and family in Virginia, I wandered to a lot of places that have a very dated feel. One of those places is where my grandmother was raised as a child. My sister, mother and I surprised Grandma by driving her to the tiny town, Motley, Virginia. It was impossible not to smile when she began to recognize various landmarks; there was a youthful excitement in her voice that I’ve not heard before.

The photos I chose for this blog post are a mix of the adventure with my grandmother as well as interesting sights I happened upon while visiting throughout the week. I decided to create custom color digital images, mainly because I want them to feel both very present and also very old. Seeing Grandma wave at the passing train as she did when she was a child sparked this idea.

Until next week, enjoy, and take care ya’ll.
