For anyone who hasn't been to Fallingwater this image is just a tiny snippet of the beauty there. The whole house and other buildings on the grounds are all done in this wonderful stone work.
The house itself is a marvel and is designed in such a way that is in total harmony with the beautiful nature surrounding it. Plenty of outdoor space to be able to commune with nature!
If you'd like to see more images of Fallingwater you can visit the sites listed on the top right on my blog and also the lower right too.

Every time I tried to take a shot someone would walk in front of the camera. I don't know what struck me so much about this place, but it was one of those times that your mind just said, "I like this, take a photo!"
Downtown Charlottesville has undergone many many changes over the years. The major one in my lifetime was the main street that flowed through the heart of downtown being converted from a street you could drive on, to a purely pedestrian area that is closed off to cars.
This place of business has seen a lot of changes, but it's outward appearance hasn't changed, and I really love that!
It's wonderful to see places preserved whether it's from thousands of years ago or 50 years ago. History and the architecture of the time needs to be cherished and preserved!
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!!
