#14. Photography- ‘Deep South‘ By Sally Mann, 2005.
” Living in the South often means slipping out of temporal joint, a peculiar phenomenon that I find both nourishes and wounds. To identify a person as a Southern suggests not only that her history is inescapable and formative but that it is also impossibly present. Southerns live uneasily at the nexus between myth and reality, watching the mishmash amalgam of sorrow, humility, honor, graciousness, and renegade defiance play out against a backdrop of profligate physical beauty.”

Person- Chris (left) and a helper began the long, arduous task of clearing some trees on our property for a future structure. Then he used his portable mill to cut up the lumber for interior planking.
Place- The site where either a barn or cottage will be built.
Thing- I’ve come across quite a few antique signs that I’d love to display in our farmhouse kitchen. But only one could fit. This sign (above) didn’t make the cut.
