Was in Southport, NC today and saw this little tour cart stop along the street, I'm not sure what these ladies were looking at but they had their phones up so I waved and they all seemed to be shooting me with their phones, so I had my camera at my side and shot back, their reaction was gret, maybe there was alcohol involved.

After explaining to me how he'd been in the Navy and later spent 14 years in prison, the details of his prosthetic leg, and the fact that the town museum contained a sign that had formerly marked the location of his uncle's laundry, this gentleman insisted on having his picture take with that sign. He really gets a kick out of that sign. To him, it represents the destruction of his home community by "urban beautification", sometimes referred to as, "gentrification". I would suggest that he is aware of a certain irony in the presence of the "love sculpture" put there by the people who destroyed his community. I think he'd say, "Who you kiddn'?".

Reminds me of a song, "I went back to Ohio, but my city was gone..."; similar to my own experience - it's as if the community I grew up in had never existed. No point in even going back to look for it, been gone for a long time. That's progress, I reckon.

Picture taken in Beautiful Downtown Culpeper, Virginia. My grandmother (who had roots in the Fredericksburg area) always used to say, "No good thing comes out of Culpeper.", a slightly distorted application of what they said about whether "any good thing could come out of Nazareth".

Reminds me of a production I saw of "The Glass Menagerie" by Tennessee Williams. The stage scenery was of a living room (as the narrator remembered his home ) but set in a ruined building (as the narrator found it when he returned years later). I don't think he did return in the original story. Though only a teenager I was very moved by the play and have often looked out for a chance to see it again.
