I had a great conversation and portrait session with James ‘Ike’ Eichling, owner of Ike’s Underground located in downtown Charlottesville.

This photo is for an upcoming C-Ville Weekly article and to say that Ike has lived an eclectic life, is to say the least. He’s been a florist, Methodist minister, farmer, Air Force medic (Air Power!), sociologist, director of JAUNT, actor, coffee house proprietor, tour bus driver and now owns an emporium for clothes, furnishings and magazines.

If you’re local, be absolutely sure to pick up next week’s issue and read his full interview.
