The week in pictures

on October 16, 2010

Sometimes, you’re just not going to click on words. As surprised as I am that you aren’t always clicking on our scintillating headlines (what, you weren’t driven into a frenzy by “Health care reform, and what it means for you“?), we get it. So, here’s a look back at the last few weeks in Richmond through some of our photos. Click on the pictures to go to the original story. We’ll be making this a regular weekly feature, so check back.

And this is how they stunt

The Kennedy High School cheerleaders make “stunting” look easy, but the coach says it requires lots of strength. The team of 17 is made up of mostly newcomers, since last year’s squad had only five members by the end of the season. (Photo by Tyler Orsburn)

It’s showtime

    I’ve never acknowledge it consciously before but I am always impressed with the photography of RC.
