The Hitching Post At Greenhow Store, Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia


In the waning hours of the day, the sun casts long shadows and calm and quiet begin to settle on the bustling colonial capital of Virginia.  The barrels and crates used to hold goods for shipping and storage line the stairs and the wooden bucket that offers the carriage horses a cool drink between their appointed rounds sits idly under a tree near the unoccupied hitching post

In a rare moment, we were able to photograph the Greenhow Store on Duke of Gloucester Street in Colonial Williamsburg without horse nor human with which to contend.

Great shot, with no life yet with all signs of life!

This in a fitting scene of commerce in the era before cardboard boxes and plastic bags.

How divine to capture the waning hours of a busy community. You are very lucky to live in that wonderful spot.

What a beautiful town in which to live. We go there but never see the residential areas. I bet they are lovely. Your photo tonight is so nice. It brings back lots of memories. genie

Another favorite time is to visit at dusk - when the ghost tours line up. Its quite a site. Then once the various teams go off its cool to see the evening tours complete with torches.
