Today’s Photo Friday had me a bit confused at first. The theme is Theme Day, Numbers or Names…. After asking around I discovered that there are some places that have really creative house names and numbers.

I have never lived in such a place…

So, I had to think on this one. I did find some houses around here that were named (2 of them) but in today’s world, I might get arrested for standing in their yard taking a photo.

Then on Tuesday night, on the way home from Football practice, it hit me….

Subdivision Names!

Here in Spotsylvania everyone lives in a named subdivision… and each one has it’s own name. When you move here people ask you first thing which subdivision you live in. It was a new thing for me, but kinda cool. Each subdivision has its own name too….

Jan suggested she was going to do a Photo Mosiac using Big Labs, so I followed her idea…

So without further ado, here are the subdivision names around Spotsylvania County (I couldn’t get them all either… sorry!)

A few subdivisions around Spotyslvania Virginia

A few subdivisions around Spotyslvania Virginia

1. Lee’s Hill, 2. Courthouse Commons, 3. Ballentraye, 4. Breezewood Forest, 5. Steeplechase, 6. Long Branch Estates, 7. Beauclaire Plantation, 8. Kingswood, 9. Estates of Idlewood, 10. Stratford, 11. Lee’s Hill, 12. Fox Point, 13. Summers Landing

Baby Girl and I had so much fun driving around taking photos of each sign. My favorite was the waterfall, I thought there was a name on it but found out there isn’t…. I kept the photo anyway and put it in the middle.

8th August: Author’s choice – Reflections (in lakes, rivers, puddles, ponds or even windows etc.)

15th August: MY choice – Wildlife

22nd August: Julie’s choice “Hat Day” (a picture of someone’s hat, that’s funny, pretty, or a self-portrait of us wearing our favorite or funny hat)

29th August: Mrs Nascar’s choice – Old cars (any interesting old cars from rusty scrapheap cars with a bird’s nest under the bonnet, to fabulous vintage or racing cars)

  1. I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!

  2. Omaha was a town where you told people what neighborhood you lived in… I could NEVER remember them, tho! It’s so fun to prepare for this PFs… I drove around and tried to spy on good photo opps. too!

  3. Those are all very neat, the waterfall is beautiful.

  4. I love your photo. When going to your house i alway love looking at that waterfall. you and baby girl did a0 great job.

  5. I’m intrigued! Is there something special about Friday 8th August? Re the comment you left? Do tell? Nothing too big, just that it is 8/8/08

  6. Now that’s what I call really skilled innovation! That is a fabulous mosaic and puts mine to shame (my nly excuse is I haven’t had access to my computer this week!) Yours is really original and I’m glad you and Baby girl enjoyed gathering the information.
