In my Outdoors column in Sunday’s T-D I featured a local photographer who spent the past year working on a very cool project. Once a week for the past 52 weeks, Elli Morris took her iPhone down to the James River (and around it) and shoot video of the people who use it and what they use it for. She talked to anglers, boaters, tubers, standup paddleboarders, rock climbers, hikers, birders, mountain bikers and more.

On Friday, Morris will present the result of all that footage, a 45-minute film called Affair with the James, at Diversity Park just south of the Mayo Bridge along the floodwall in Manchester. The premiere begins at 9 p.m. and is free and open to the public. To learn more, check out her website. Below you’ll find the movie trailer.

About Andy Thompson

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
