recent roll: Alexandria, VA; Old Town on 35mm film

Since moving to Alexandria, VA I hadn’t taken any photos in Old Town… until a few weeks back! I took advantage of what seemed to be the last days of Fall’s 70-degree weather to wander the cobblestone streets shooting a bunch of film. Old town has too many shops to name and probably even more attractions so if you are coming to the city to explore I’d recommend three distinct area.

Where do I shoot in Old Town Alexandria?

I usually visit three main areas: the Masonic Memorial, the Waterfront and the picture-perfect neighborhoods and side streets along the way.

I set out with a few rolls of B&W Ilford HP5 400 (I finished off a color roll here too) and my Canon EOS 3; starting at the George Washington National Masonic Memorial and working my way east on King St towards the Harbor. Along the way there are tons of historic homes and beautiful row houses to admire.

Pro Tip: Portrait photographers can almost always be seen about a block off the water on at Captain’s Row on Prince Street using the cobblestone street, beautiful home facades or infamous alleyways to capture that east cost Virginia vibe.

The Alexandria VA Waterfront is easily the most trafficked area in the city; home to a handful of the cities most well-known restaurants, the Torpedo Art Museum, Harbor and more. It’s certainly a great place to hang out.
