Week 41 {old} Virginia Museum of Fine Art

I had a moms day out with a couple of friends this weekend and we visited the Virginia Museum of Fine Art so I had many opportunities to photograph the theme, “old.”

After taking a look at my pictures of old things, move along the blog circle to Nancy Schumacher Photography.
