For as long as I have known my husband, he has talked about “One Day” going to Virginia and visiting the great Civil War battle sites. Well, this summer we made that dream come true by spending 10 days in that beautiful state.
We both loved Virginia, enjoyed the warm weather, couldn’t get enough of the mountain views and appreciated the cobblestones and old charm of the small towns we visited.
I loved the time we spent together, and I enjoyed expanding my historical knowledge, but I also must admit that I am not quite as passionate as Hubby about standing in historical battlefields and imagining where the troops were lined up and understanding the battle tactics of the generals.
And so, I gave myself a fun photography project.
While hubby immersed himself in history, and spent time getting “just the right shot” of the monuments and other places we visited, I took photos from another perspective.
Edwin is a small Canadian hippo who conveniently fits in a pocket or purse and who was ready for adventure in Virginia. My task was to record his journey, and I must admit I had a great time finding creative spots for him to perch at the many places we visited. And in the end, his photos are a fun and whimsical account of our trip.
I can’t wait to put his album together. And it was so much fun, that I think on our next trip (wherever and whenever that may be) this little guy will definitely be tagging along!
Anyone else have ideas for creating special vacation photos?
