Things have been slow and I haven’t been shooting too much lately. This week started to pick up a little bit…here are a few frames shot between my last post and now
Oregon Halloween parade, Obama at Richmond International, Varina v. Hanover football, Central Region Cheerleading Tournament, Tall Bike Ring Toss, and the VCU Collegiate Cyclocross Race
Big Business Brantley, the Chesterfield Obama phone bank, Cosby vs Manchester HS, Obama landing at Newport News/Williamsburg Airport, Custer’s Last Waistband, and the Richmond Folk Festival
Slow week…only one assignment with any meat to it…spent an evening with the Richmond Cycle Corps while they trained for the 100-mile Tour of Richmond that happened on Saturday.
The Cowboy Prince sewing like the wind….Wayne Powell campaigning in Bon Air….and footballers footballing
The Color Run, SBRE’s Hill Kill, and lots and lots of football
Through Asheville, NC, and Savannah, GA
“I leaned my head into the deepest waves,
I sank through the sulfuric peace
and like a blind man
returned to the Jasmine
of the exhausted human springtime.”
Sat on these for a while…oh well
For a gallery showing at Pibby’s Bike Shop
In an attempt to inspire his generation to engage and embrace day-to-day life, Charlie Umhau will live as a 19th-century street peddler for the next year. The project - part performance art piece, part local business initiative - consists of selling hand stitched shirts from the back of a 200 pound Amish hand cart. After his initial travels through Richmond, Charlie will be walking the cart 110 miles to Washington, D.C.
I was lucky enough to spend an afternoon in Charlie’s garage while he painted the cart in preparation for the journey. This is seriously one of the coolest things ever, and if you’re interested in helping with the project/want more information, check out his kickstarter campaign!
