For the inaugural post of Snapshots of RVA, I took a trip to Brown’s Island Park near downtown Richmond in September 2014. I was originally looking for the bridge that runs from there to Belle Isle, but I didn’t realize that the bridge I was looking for — the pedestrian walkway under the Lee Bridge — was further to the west. Instead, I explored Brown’s Island and snapped these pictures.
