Country Love 1 April 2005
 
The bucolic scenes of southeastern Georgia were a pleasant change from the scrubbiness of northern Florida. Unlike in Florida, where the mere appearance of my camera seemed to incite the worst in the locals, the folks in Georgia just let me be. For the first time in a week I shot photos in peace, and I was intensely grateful for the privilege.

This change in geographic attitude was particularly evident when I checked out a small rural gift shop in the town of Lakeland. I was conspicuously out of place there among the camouflage baseball hats and Deer Fest t-shirts. But no one took much notice of me at all. The anonymity was priceless.
