Today in Rip Payne

12 Jul

by Emma Earnst


On this day in 1986, Rip Payne attended a Kiwanis picnic, where he not only took pictures of his friends, but got to sit in the hot seat himself for a few shots.

The Kiwanis club of Charlottesville has been the subject of many of a Rip Payne image, and now we understand why—he was a member himself.

On this sunny July afternoon, the group gathered for barbecue, brews, and horseshoe.

Doesn’t sound too bad, eh?!
