My lunch time walk in Richmond took me too capitol square. It was a nice afternoon and the beds were freshly planted with pansies. The tulips had not yet started blooming. It was nice to see the crowd on the capitol. There were people enjoying their lunch time, the regular walkers (including me), and a lot tour groups mostly consisting of school children. It is one of my favorite lunchtime destinations, with grassy lawns, plants and sculptures. Even the capitol and the governor’s mansion give of a vibe of history, the capitol having been designed by Thomas Jefferson (1788) and the mansion by Alexander Parris (1813). I used the HDR setting on my cell phone camera to take this picture.
