Roanoke Today Through the Lens of Award Winning Photographer Terry Aldhizer!



We often look back to the happy, carefree days of childhood and remember what our home town used to look like. I find myself doing this often. It is interesting to look back and see pictures of my home town, Roanoke, VA as it was when I was a child, when my parents were children and of course, what it looked like when my grandparents and great grandparents were young. This is why I was inspired to write a novel inspired by my grandmother’s childhood.

There is a great contrast to “Old Roanoke” and the Roanoke we visit today. Photographer, Terry Aldhizer has done an amazing job capturing what Roanoke looks like today. She has given me permission to share some of her wonderful photographs with you today.


The Mill Mountain Star is one of the most famous icons for Roanoke. When I see this picture, I think, “Home.” I grew up on the other side of Mill Mountain.  Thank you, Terry for reminding me of home and family who still reside there. kp




 Terry Aldhizer’s beautiful photographs are available at her websites and facebook page.

If you are interested in Roanoke, VA you will not be disappointed. Terry captures the wonderful scenery while transporting us there, watching the clouds float by. Be sure to see the time-lapse images of the Salem Fair and glory in the beauty of a starry night.
