Exploring

Exploring with a tank of gas and a smile...and snacks. Always.

After college, I worked as a courier for the 2010 U.S. Census. It was an amazing job because I travelled most of the day, alone. I hadn’t explored Georgia because I’ve been saying I want to leave here since 1999. I am a Miami girl at heart and Georgia hasn’t always been my favorite place. I saw things in the South that I had never seen because I was on the road armed only  with Census maps. I listened to whatever was on the radio–a habit that remains true.

It was exhilarating for so many reasons. I fell in love with beautiful, decaying towns  that litter the South. Currently, many Southern town are experiencing a renaissance by way of new, young citizens concerned with revitalization. Or, more often, by corporate interests. I want to capture them in this transitional time.

Here is what I saw in Lexington and Washington.

So I’m trying to be more aware and present while I travel around searching for quirky vintage finds. I’m opening my eyes a little more.
