Day one RVA, Team Time Trial Training.
Every time I see an adult on a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.

Day 2, the other side of the bridge.
Day 4, I ventured out to see the women’s elite and was pulling for Carmen Small a really cool American, from what I’ve read.
A couple of photographs from day 6.

Day 7, completely missed focal point while shooting totally manual and filming with a 2nd camera. The point being it has been a privilege to be witness of this event and will try again during the rain!
Day 9, was able to ride my Schwinn Cruiser to catch the rise from UR.
By chance I got a photo of Peter Sagan our new world champion on the road course training day when I was shooting with an all manual camera. Very good looking young man but seemed to have focused on his female teammate (Tereza Medvedová). My batting average in getting good shots wasn’t very good for this event but really enjoyed never the less.
I had a chickadee land on my hand for a peanut today and all three titmouse friends. Reflecting what was so special about today my pea brain remembered it was my mom’s birthday who would have been 101. A couple of cool photo’s of mom at the Virginia State Fair circa 1930’s? She’s sitting on a bear in one below.
One edition print I did this weekend.
The Richmond Indigenous Gourd Orchestra deemed my banana trees worthy of group portrait this year. Costumes by Christina Lindholm.
I managed one good snapshot on my p300 and short film pending………….
My first bike I received Christmas (circa 1960). Restored 2008 for my wife. Taken with my first digital Nikon, a Coolpix L6.
