New Wheels

- "How do you like my new wheels?" It's not very often you get to see an old brick house up on wheels ready for a move. This house in the Kempsville section of Virginia Beach, Virginia is being moved because of a road widening project. Ironically it is old but not really old like the dozen or so other colonial era homes that were located nearby and lost to development over the past 50 years. In the early 20th Century, Kempsville was sometimes compared to Williamsburg. Like Williamsburg it had numerous colonial buildings that time had passed by. Unfortunately it had no John D. Rockefeller, Jr. to save it. Canon G11, 1/320 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 200.

Snowy Day

From 2010 Blog
Virginia Beach had snow for the third Saturday in row. Three Canada Geese forage on the site of the 5th Courthouse of Princess Anne County, now part of the City of Virginia Beach. The 1778 Courthouse was torn down 40 years ago but the 1769 Georgian style Pleasant Hall in the background has been restored and is now owned by Kempsville Baptist Church.

265 - Gone

From 365 Project
This is all that remains of the old Kempsville Volunteer Fire and Rescue building that was demolished this week. The big yellow excavator made quick work of turning the 53 year old Kempsville landmark into a pile of rubble. This and other buildings are being cleared for the new Princess Anne Road/Kempsville Road intersection improvements. Canon 40D, 1/60 sec @ f/9.0, ISO 400, 28mm focal length.
