Quest for LOVE Update

Quest for LOVE Update

You know it’s hard to keep track of how many LOVEworks there are to visit when even the Virginia travel folks can’t pin down the exact number! In this blog post from February, the travel folks said “more than 65.” That’s technically true, but the number is now higher than 70! I’ve physically visited and captured […]

Unanticipated LOVE

Unanticipated LOVE

I’ll be the first person to admit that I sometimes go out of my way to see some of the stuff that I photograph. Like the big Virginia LOVE signs. I’ve gone out of my way to see a bunch of those. But sometimes, I encounter them unexpectedly. Take this past Thursday as an example. […]

Farmville, Not a Game

Farmville, Not a Game

Until recently, Farmville was just the name of a town I’d seen on road signs. It probably stuck in my head because of FarmVille, the farming simulation social network game (I have never played). As I was planning my trip, I did a quick little bit of research on every targeted LOVEwork location to see if there was […]
