Q: how good are tokina lenses?

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Taken in the C.B. Holt Rock House, one of the first African American owned homes in Charlottesville, VA built by hand with stones carted up from the Rivanna River during the time of Jim Crow laws. The house's history is as colorful as it's walls – a family’s residence, at one point a basement speak easy, and later once abandoned, it was a house of ill-repute, of vagrants, drugs and prostitution for over 30 years. In 2005 it's historical significance was recognized and shortly after this series of photos was taken, the interior was gutted and rebuilt, the stone exterior left intact. The house now holds the offices of pro-bono legal counsel, as well as information about the history of the home.
