An Early Victorian

An Early Victorian

Early Victorian structures were relatively simple in style, while those built after the Civil War became more complicated. They combined styles as they saw fit. The end result was often a stunning visual effect. The building styles of post-Civil War America were elaborate and flamboyant, very much fueled by new industrial society. Now, collectively called “Victorian” the architecture was made up of several main styles.

Contemporary critics accuse the Victorians of needless complexity and clutter. Victorian architecture up to 1870 was thought by some, especially Europeans, to be a failure. This near revulsion by critics was expressed at first only by a few, but as the decade went on, criticism increased.

The latter part of the nineteenth century brought a new attitude toward color. Before then, the houses of the tract builders tended to be painted all one color, usually white, beige or gray. By 1887, many people were painting their houses in lighter, brighter colors. The vibrant colors are one of the more easily identifiable features of Victorian architecture today. http://www.victorianstation.com/vicarch.html

Through the Window #9

Through the Window #9

Looking through the window of one of the museums, the undertaker’s shop, at the Old City Cemetery in Lynchburg, Virginia… #9 in a new series and on going project I am working on. All images will be in black and white, and be shot through a window…sometimes with reflections from outside. Some are quite abstract and others not so much…

Cooling It

Cooling It

Yesterday, on Otter Creek on a hot July afternoon, I came across this little guy cooling off in a swimming hole…he was using his shoe as a boat.
