Canal Walk

The James River and Kanawha Canal was a canal in Virginia, which was built to facilitate shipments of passengers and freight by water between the western counties of Virginia and the coast.
The canal was built in 1785, planned by George Washington himself, but it was only half completed by 1851. It was an expensive project, which failed several times financially and was frequently damaged by floods. After the American Civil War, a massive flooding in 1877 destroyed the canal project.
In the second half of the 20th century, portions of the old canal, locked and turning basins became the source of renewed interest in Richmond. As part of Richmond's revival, a portion of the canal was restored. Richmond's Canal Walk extends for 2 km parallel to the old Haxall and James River and Kanawha canals.

This was the place where me and my photography friends took some pictures last weekend. The challenge was to shoot according to a specific subject that was selected randomly. My assignment was to shoot Architecture!

I hope you like it!

Kiss, kiss

  6. Olha, lembrei-me de ti hoje e do teu problema com o starter. N'ao me lembro se já te disse, se o fiz desculpa. Nos States há uma marca de farinhas e tal que se chama King Arthur, conheces certamente, e têm starter já pronto a usar à venda! Podes começar por aí e depois ir guardando e voltando a usar.
    E a receita da mousse hm?

    bjs e bom fim de semana!
