The city of Richmond, Virginia is one of America’s oldest cities. It is home to an incredibly large variety of modern street art. There are tons of beautiful murals peppered around the city, thanks to the Richmond Mural Project.
And as an old city that has been densely populated and rich in industrial history, it is ripe with advertising ghost signs on its, in some cases, centuries-old buildings. You could spend days exploring and documenting what the city has to offer.
Alas, in the early autumn of 2018, I was just riding through town on my way south. But, I did manage to snap a few photos along the way, like this one – a lovely Coca-Cola fade paired with a modern portrait mural on my way out.
There is something particularly sweet about stumbling across things that you love versus seeking them out. It’s like uncovering a treasure.
