so i decided last minute to go to richmond, va to visit my sister anne a few days ago. richmond is such a cool place. so much cool architecture. i was able to go with anne to one of her projects (a building up for historic nomination). it was a cool old factory, now offices, that will be turned into condos. unfortunately i didn't get any pictures of that place. here is an average street in richmond, tons of old buildings.

we had a grand old time. we ate at buzz & ned's barbeque, which was amazing.

we went to a really cool antique mall, west end antiques. i found some pretty cool little things there. these are a few treasures i didn't purchase. next time.

a cool motel sign we passed

this was in hollywood cemetery. i'm not sure if there's something wrong with me or not, but i secretly love old cemeteries. they are fascinating to me. this one has over 18,000 confederate soldiers buried in it. it makes me want to learn more about the cival war.

this is a cool old theatre, the byrd that still plays movies. on saturday nights a man plays the mighty wurlitzer (the theatre's organ) before the movie. i'm so sad i wasn't there on a saturday to hear him play. definitely going to do that next time though.
