James River Batteau Festival (Central Virginia)

Saturday before last, men, women, and children anxiously climbed aboard their boats to embarq on a journey with life on the James River in celebration of the 24th Annual Batteau Festival. The Batteau Festival is an eight-day boating and camping trip from Lynchburg to Richmond, celebrating nature and life on the water during early American history. Through these images you will find that stories were shared, friendships were formed (or strengthened), love was born, a couple honeymooned, but most importantly, people worked together when faced with an obstacle. I am very excited about this series and welcome your feedback. This body of work is still evolving. Please check back often!
