Michael Stipe of R.E.M. was hanging out at the venue we played at in Athens, GA and I happened to remember we had just bought a cassette tape of their album "Murmur". After mustering the courage to talk to him I got him to sign it and gave him a complimentary t-shirt. Immediately after signing he said "I spelled my name wrong." which was true.
The route to Knoxville was a welcomed break from the interstate and we were able to stop and enjoy some countryside.
Interesting light should never be wasted.
We couldn't pass up an opportunity for a good band portrait.
ever been to Gatlinburg, TN? We hadn't and we were shocked.

The day after our show we stopped by Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA.

This blog was an idea I've had floating around for a while as a way of keeping art and photography a part of my life and the rest of the members of Lonnie Walker I graduated Art School with. My hope is that this blog will be filled with photos Brian, Justin, and I have made during our travels with Lonnie Walker. It is not meant to be an information blog, instructional blog, opinion blog, or fashion blog. It is a blog about photographs and what its like to be with your friends, in a van, in a bunch of different cities.
