A picture a day of the town of Lexington, Virginia
Wednesday, January 28, 2009
Ice coats the branches of a dogwood tree, whose bird house waits for spring.
After much anticipation and excitement, our big snow event brought nothing but freezing rain. Somewhere north and east of here, the snow is falling. School was cancelled, though, so it was a perfect day to sit in front of the:
A town of 7,000 in the Shenandoah Valley -- home to Washington and Lee University and the Virginia Military Institute; resting place of Civil War generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson; and at the center of one of the prettiest counties in Virginia: Rockbridge County.
I'm not a photo-grapher -- just doing the best I can to represent my town with my tiny Nikon Coolpix 2200. (Feel free to offer photography criticism.) Taking pictures for this blog will keep me looking around.
