Evening strolls

from the past week. 

also rounded up all of my bike stuff from the past few years last week…for those of you that haven’t seen - there’s a new page on my website here  (or for those of you who have - I made some pretty big tweaks in sequencing and added a frame since I first put it up)

2013 Retrospective

2013 was a pretty solid year - I finished school, I got a ten-week taste of full time work at a newspaper, and I managed to squeeze in a few personal projects on the side.  

I spent an afternoon in Richmond International Raceway’s RV Park heart of darkness, a night rollerskating with a swarm of denim-clad bikers, and a summer’s worth of evenings in the Flying Squirrels’ dugout.

I made friends in a civil war encampment and drank a beer with pirates on Ocracoke Island.  

I biked through the post-apocalyptic Richmond City limits with wizards rogues and rangers, bounced up and down the East Coast like a human yo-yo, and got lost in a quarry that I didn’t know existed.

I learned what exactly my dad meant when he told me photojournalism is mostly a “hurry-up-and-wait” ordeal through hours sitting on basketball court baselines, waiting for Obama to walk through the Rose Garden, and chasing Bill Clinton through a suburban Red Lobster.

And I apologize if all of this is redundant since most of these photos are reposts or self-aggrandizing because…y’know (it is)…but I’ve always kinda been a sucker for year-in-reviews.  And this was a good one.

(and thanks for looking…it’s kind of a lot.)

November

I haven’t had the chance to do very much shooting in between the mountain of papers that I’ve had to grind through this past month and finishing school, but I did manage to spend a pretty good chunk of November sitting on the floor of The Siegel Center.  Here’s some stuff from a handful of VCU games as well as the girls’ state volleyball championship. IMG_6346

Weeks 9 + 10 (the last two)

Slower work weeks as the dog days of summer put Richmond in their usual stranglehold

anyway!

Lakeside Community Garden, classic cars at RIR, Terry McAuliffe at the Redskins Training Camp, Henrico Superintendent Patrick Russo during misconduct investigations, weight-loss line dancing at Zacharias Ganey Health Institute with Walter Jones, a former ZG security guard, and…the good ol’ SquirrelsR0810_GARD
