I call Alabama my own "promised" land. Having lived away from it the past 10 years, I, as a passionate photographer, have pursued the back roads of the Black Belt region in order to document the lives and thoughts of the people there. By seeking home front encounters with the wonderful, warm people of this region, I have learned more about Alabama history than I did from text books. I hope to use my blog, as a reminder to all, that often we need each others help. My focus will be on blankets this winter, books for the shut ins, and diapers for the babies/toddlers. I welcome any advice and I hope to post photos as I follow my heart and dreams for my neighbors.
