Jenny at Prospect Hill


Jenny at Prospect Hill

Here’s another photo from Prospect Hill Plantation B&B. I took this of Jenny during a stroll around the manor house in the spring of last year. I liked the way the soft light of the early evening sun captured her smile and some highlights in her hair. The subtle red in her coat compliments the red in the American flag in the distant background.

Shush!


Shush!

Last year, Jenny and I spent a weekend at Prospect Hill Plantation B&B in Louisa, VA, about halfway between Richmond and Charlottesville. The manor house dates to the early 18th century and is surrounded by stately Oaks and rolling pastures, reminders of a once sprawling plantation. Strolling the grounds in the early evening before dinner, I came upon this garden cherub shushing a frog and felt I had intruded upon their private conversation. I politely snapped this photo and then moved on, careful not to disturb them again.
