Here are some photos I took a few weeks ago in Norfolk, VA. I know I shared these on Instagram but I don’t believe I posted here. If you would like to follow me on Instagram my name there is CKA757.

The Wells Theatre in downtown Norfolk, VA. Love the details in this building!
Some shots I took last night at the Pagoda and oriental garden in downtown Norfolk.
Just sitting downstairs enjoying the nice weather this morning. Must be in the 60′s already.
Had a good day with friends yesterday which helped get my mind off the events of Friday night.
Now, as I look out our back door it’s all I’ve been thinking about.
I’m feeling angry mostly. Anger that some jerk decided to play with my life in a moving vehicle. I’m sure I’m not going to hear anything from the police. They will probably be too busy looking for a doughnut shop to check the video feed of the tunnel.
I guess the feeling that’s bugging me the most is I feel vulnerable. I realize how quickly things can change and that feeling of control you thought you had is gone.
Do you ever get that feeling back?
Ever have something happen that made you feel this was it, your time on Earth was up? I did late last night.
I was coming home from Virginia Beach when it happened. I was exiting Brambleton and getting on the exit ramp to enter the Midtown tunnel to Portsmouth. Out of nowhere a foreign make suv was behind me laying on the horn and headlights turned on high beams. The exit ramp is a circle and you can’t do more than 25 to 30 MPH safely.
The person was being a real jerk! So I stayed at the speed limit of 35. I usually go faster in the tunnel but was really annoyed by this person’s actions.
The driver sped up and got too close for comfort. I could no longer see headlights in my rearview mirror. I tapped my brake hard enough to allow the lights to come on thinking this would make the person back off. Wrong! It had the opposite effect.
He or she slowed then gunned their vehicle right for the back of my car. This is a two lane tunnel and I had oncoming traffic. I grabbed the wheel and braced for what I thought was going to be an impact. The car got as close to my rear as you can without hitting me. They did this several times.
Then this idiot gunned and went around me with cars coming the opposite direction.
Once they got around you’d think they would have pulled away as fast as you can but they stayed at least 5 car lengths in front of me.
I was able to get the license plate number and called 911. Gave them the information and also suggested they check the tunnel cameras. I lost the fool shortly thereafter. I told dispatcher I would press charges.
I don’t know what this persons problem was. Was this road rage? Was it a stolen vehicle? I did nothing to anyone in highway. I didn’t cut anyone off in traffic before this happened.
I’m just glad the worst did not happen. I think I will just stay home tomorrow and stay off the highway.
Made me realize how quickly my life could have ended last night.
Thank God it didn’t.
