There are some parts of running The Cheats Movement that are pretty difficult – balancing out time – deciding when to post what material – and of course, always searching for RVA content that is new, exciting for me to post, and interesting for you to view. However, there are some things that come together and you know instantly – this works; today’s post is one of them. I’ve wanted to highlight Grape Cloth since the start of this blog. Iain Duffus, the founder and co-owner, of Grape is truly a self made entrepreneur. He, along side his wife, started Grape as a way to escape the corporate world and work for themselves, their family, and their community. This is Part 1 of my interview with Iain. I caught up with him outside of the Camel while he was co-sponsoring an event featuring local hip-hop artist. Grape Cloth represents what The Cheats Movement Blog is all about – highlighting diversity and originality, uplifting our community and making RVA a better, more positive place. Go visit www.GrapeCloth.com and support the vision.
First I have to credit Becca Johnson for the title...Becca, B. King, and I were playing disc golf at Gillies Creek a few weeks back and just saw a massive horseshoe game. It goes down every afternoon at Gillies Creek. I took this yesterday. My goal for the summer is to get some of this on film.
Every train in the park had great work on it - I love this shot because of the color, track, and sky. It was great day for shooting.
Again - this is artwork from the Boulevard Softball Field fence -- I really wish I knew who was responsible for this work. It's really great stuff and it can be seen right from I-95.
A while back, my man King and I set out to shoot some train graffiti, I took this shot on the way to the train and just rediscovered how much I like the feel of the picture.
Extremely bored last night, my man B. King and I took to the streets. RVA has some awesome signs and stickers and this will be a new focus of mine. Click on the new page and see the rest from last night.
Richmond will forever have to balance honoring its historic past with the acknowledgement of many great injustices. This monument understands of the horrors of the past and represents healing for the future.
