I will do my best to update daily with whatever I stumble across, so check back often.

"The beauty, mystery and captivations of the South are ever-present. How we live here today, what we treasure enough to record in art, images and words… how we tell our stories, that's the question.
Wherever we are, we feel the South."

I had about one hour to drive around and look for places that stirred my soul. Oddly, this field was squawk dab between a budding mega-church and a housing development. It seemed that if you could shut off the noise of traffic and walk across it hearing only the breeze, the crunch of the dry grass below your feet and the frenetic chirping of the birds hiding in the small grove of trees, it could drop your blood pressure by about 25%. It was enough to spend a few minutes thinking about it and photographing it to help my pressure some. Scenes like this offering us a chance to decompress are becoming too few.
