Alexandria and Old Town

Photograph Alexandria's colonial architecture, street activities and waterfront!

Quick Details

Our safari will begin at the waterfront, move on to the Torpedo Factory area with its marina, the jugglers, the paddleboats and musicians, and then up King Street and its adjoining streets to capture the Town Hall, the storefronts, the colonial architecture, the doorknobs, the housefronts, finally ending at the Christ Church on Washington Street. Architectural photographer E. David Luria will give tips on informal portraiture and architectural photography.
