On Sunday I leaped out of bed and excitedly rushed back and forth getting ready to go to Richmond. We'd previously had to postpone the trip due to inclement weather but today was warm and sunny. I met the group down in Fredericksburg and became the passenger of Lewis who drove a Miata and we chatted about iPhone photos exchanging useful apps. Our first stop was an old gas works which was beautifully decayed and offering limitless wonderful photo opportunities. The weather was really cooperating and it was great not having to worry and fuss over cold fingers working my camera.
There's an interesting way to view information about Fulton Gas Works here.
Once finished with the gasworks, it was onwards to an abandoned school. It was getting hot now so Lewis dropped the top on his car and we sped along enjoying the warm breeze. I never thought that after the last few cold weekends I'd be zipping along in a sports car with the roof down in March. Crazy weather.
A guy was sitting on his porch opposite the school so I started chatting with him and found out that the police sometimes used the empty buildings to train their dogs. Well, they weren't here today so we went to have a look inside.
