A panorama of an intersection in Old Town Manassas
Manassas is a town just to the south of us in Northern Virginia. While the downtown area, usually referred to as "Old Town," is fairly small, Manassas covers a large area, including residential areas and shopping malls. The population is so big that Manassas is actually a separate county.

I happened to be in the old town, with time to kill, so I wandered around, using my new Panasonic DMC-ZS40 (overseas it's a TZ60). This is a fun camera, with its tiny size, built-in EVF, and a lens with a 30 to 1 zoom range.

I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
