Short Pump & Richmond, Virginia

Short Pump

Children at Cambridge church listen to Win Davis, minister to youth and young adults, as he tells a story during the children's sermon.

Jason speaks to the congregation about the need for a new sign for the church. He has become something of an evangelist for it.

Michael, center, is a Navy recruit. He leaves in a few days for basic training. Pastor Jay Smith, left, and Price McLean, right — both Navy veterans —pray for him.

Win embraces Michael at the end of the service. Win was Michael's youth minister and Sunday School teacher as Michael grew up in the church.

Careytown Watermelon Festival

Temperatures near 100-degrees Fahrenheit don't stop Jenine from enjoying a bowl of fresh, cold watermelon at the Careytown Watermelon Festival.

Rock bands and vendors line Carey Street for nearly a mile.

It isn't planned, but the festival is usually held on one of the hottest days of the year. Few can remember a cool day for the festival. The temperatures didn't dampen the spirits of the bands this year, or in years past..

This image is for a friend who has been talking like a pirate lately. "Aye," she needs this T-shirt.

Isabel — my colleague Craig's daughter — demonstrates all the inventiveness of a six-year-old. It looks a little awkward, but she is drinking water a few drops at a time from the plastic cap that covers the nozzle of the bottle.
