Here are some images of people I have met in the South. Throughout the day we are on a tight schedule but I was able to wander away from the group a couple of times and venture out. I love to explore and meet everyday people. I love it when my camera and instincts tell me to take a further look down the street.

Albert and Pat of Mrs. B's soul food restaurant in Birmingham, Alabama has some of the finest ribs I have ever had. I will also never forget their peas. Wish I could go back. Photo credit: Derek Sijder
