The Irish Pub Tour de Shore is a 65-mile charity bike ride from the Irish Pub in Philadelphia to the original Irish Pub’s location in Atlantic City. The event was held on Sunday, July 27th 2014. The funds from the Irish Pub Tour de Shore benefit children and the families of fallen Police Officers in the Greater Philadelphia and South Jersey Region.

Tour de Shore 2014-4

I was invited to ride along with my friend Joe, who works for Wheelies Bike Shop in Medford NJ, as he provided bike support for the riders. Wheelies had three support vehicles all throughout the race. Joe and I joined the racers at the first rest stop in Berlin, where there were plenty of bikes to service.

When photographing an event of this caliber, its easy to get overwhelmed with things to shoot. I set a goal to only capture emotion. By doing this I was able to calm down and focus on the action.

The Faces of New Jersey Project: Resident #7 Selma Fennimore

Meet Selma, born and raised in Bellmawr NJ. When Selma was a little girl, Bellmawr was considered Hedding Twp. It wasn’t until 1926 when the borough was renamed after the Bell family, prominent horse breeders and landowners in the area. Selma attended Elementary School at Ethel M Burke, the original Mary Ethel was Selma’s teacher. When Selma was out of School she would help out at one of the many Fennimore Farms in the area that her family owned. After Selma graduated high school she went on to be a Bar Tender at the Mount Ephraim Democrat Club and worked there for 14 years. Selma moved on from tending bar to become a bus driver for DeHart in Thorofare. She later retired as a civil service bus driver for the State of New Jersey. Selma’s fondest memory of growing up in New Jersey was being surounded by family and hanging out on the porch at the Fennimore General Store.

Thank you Selma for sitting down and sharing your story, it truly was a pleasure.
