House on Locust Avenue - Charlottesville

Here’s a night photo of a house, the core part of which was built around 1910 on Locust Ave. May souls have passed through here, and I have known a few of them.
Night shots, time exposures; sometimes they seem to reveal something quite different. Things glow and seem to breathe light. Time exposures seem able to warp time, and night lighting makes an ordinary scene into something charged with a mysterious presence.
Years ago this was all rolling hills stretching out along the Rivanna River. Some of it was farmed and the manor house still stands, somewhat hidden in old boxwoods, on the 800 block of Locust Ave.
