Nowhere that I could tell ~ because of course, I walked up there 🙂
The Liberty Trust Hotel was originally erected to house First National Bank, the first financial institution to be founded in Roanoke, Virginia. Built in 1910, The French Renaissance architectural influence of the main entrance and the Beaux Arts design of the main banking hall made it a signature structure of modern, multi-story design and innovation.
This image is of a back staircase. Still beautiful in my opinion.
These daffodils have been confused by the weather. Temperatures far too warm caused them to bloom too soon. Then they were beaten down by the rain, buffeted by the wind, and chilled by the snow, yet still they brought beauty to our home.
Not much time to shoot this week as I’ve been totally caught up in NCAA Basketball! My ACC Team is the Virginia Tech Hokies, and while the men went out on Wednesday night, the Women won the ACC Tournament! Pretty exciting actually. The Men won in 2022 and the Women in 2023.
The El Dorado is a cooperative apartment building at 300 Central Park West between 90th and 91st Streets adjacent to Central Park on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, NYC.

The El Dorado is 30 stories tall, with twin towers rising from a 19-story base. The building is a contributing property to the Central Park West Historic District, is listed on National Register of Historic Places, and is a New Yrk City designated Landmark.
Before heading back to the mountains of Southwest Virginia, I took a short walk on the Virginia Capital Trail. The Cap Trail is a 51.7 multi-use, fully-paved trail that runs from the City of Richmond, Virginia to James City County, near Williamsburg, Virginina. The goal is to add a 7 mile connector to the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg, as well as the College of William and Mary.
Part of the trail runs through a suburban wetland. Please follow the link for more information about the importance of preserving these spaces.
I am out of town, helping to care for my father who has been in hospital. This image was taken of me by a friend a few weeks ago. Even thought it is not my work, I thought I’d share it since I’ve not been able to do any shooting. I mean, how often does the photographer get photographed?
