Spend some time in the South and you’ll begin to form a personal impression of the region and its culture, how it looks, how it smells, how it feels, how it makes you feel. Those of us who love the South can’t imagine living any place else. Authors and photographers have documented its storied history for decades, the tragedies related to Civil War, the injustices, hatred and violence in the fight for civil rights and the cultural challenges currently faced in a region burdened by unprecedented growth. Although its history cannot be denied nor its landscape freed from progressive change, there’s another side to the South, a side that’s pure, romantic and pictorial, deep rooted in beauty, tradition, religion and simplicity, a side that everyone can appreciate and enjoy. This is the South I love. This is my South.
