Reston At Fifty is a book of photographs of the planned community of Reston, Virginia which turns fifty in April, 2014. The book is a pictorial celebration of the new town, including the natural beauty, the architecture, the people, and the culture of the community. Most of the photographs were taken in the last five years and depict Reston today, as I see my home town at fifty.
