Photography – Week 84
I’m walking a good bit more than I have in a while and it’s all in downtown Richmond. I walk a few blocks coming in from where I park and have the chance to walk around the campus some as well. I find myself parking farther away and taking some slightly roundabout paths coming to and from the car. This is one of those unforeseen advantages but one I’m enjoying. The Flick set from these wanderings is linked above. Keep in mind you could still join us at VCU as we have an Innovative Learning Media Specialist Position open.
I needed a bit of redemption after last week’s pitiful showing. As a result, I spent a good bit more time in the morning and wandered back to some areas on Broad Street that I’d been neglecting. A random high school tour group was coming through our building. I got the chance to divert them into the maker space area. It probably ruined their entire schedule but they had a blast. This is one young lady using Jamie Mahoney’s letter press (which was a huge hit). This was a bit of a joke based on an image David found but when you run across a welcome mat in an alley . . . The video game learning area with Enoch Hale was a popular space. I just liked the color and geometry of this one. I thought they were taking a selfie. She saw me taking the picture and it led to an interesting conversation with both of them. Turns out they were showing pictures of their pets. I would have two more stranger portraits but it’s a company policy that they aren’t allowed to be photographed while wearing those shirts.
