Thomas Jefferson's estate in Charlottesville, Virginia is called Monticello. I have wanted to photograph it for as long as I can remember and I will finally have the chance next month! Jefferson loved Paris, cultivating fruits & flowers and the elements of design - a man after my own heart! Back in college, I began this octagonal building and grounds in counted cross-stitch. I was sure that it was Monticello (known for its octagonal rooms) and have been telling everyone that I wanted to visit it ever since. My question to you is: Have you been? Do you have any advice for me? I will be photographing architectural details, floral portraits and landscapes. What would you like to see?
