ODU @ Night

The brick entrance sign of my alma mater Old Dominion University at the southwest corner of West 49th Street and Hampton Boulevard in Norfolk, Virginia. ODU began in 1930 as the Norfolk Division of William and Mary, becoming an independent college in 1962 and attaining university status in 1969. Old Dominion University derives its name from one of Virginia's state nicknames, "The Old Dominion", given to the state by King Charles II of England for remaining loyal to the crown during the English Civil War. Canon G15, 1/20 sec @ f/2.8, ISO 800, handheld and converted to black and white using Silver Efex Pro.

The Wells @ Night

The Wells's ornate decoration made the theatre the flagship of Wells Amusement Enterprises, and continues today as a well preserved example of Beaux-Arts Classicism, a National Historic Landmark and home to the Virginia Stage Company.

Night Fountain

Norfolk's Chrysler Hall viewed from across the fountains in Scope Plaza. We attended the Tedeschi Trucks Band concert there tonight. Chrysler Hall was opened in 1972 and named as part of an agreement with Walter P. Chrysler Jr. to bring his art collection to the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences which now also bears the Chrysler name. Chrysler, whose father, Walter Sr., founded the Chrysler Corporation, devoted much of his life to building a multimillion-dollar collection of paintings and art glass. Canon ELPH 110.
