A photo post: Headland, Ala.

I’ve been remiss in my blogging the last few days — a long, mostly unplugged weekend of travel — and catching up afterwards, are the primary reasons. So, until I catch up, here is a set of photos from one of the stops along the backroads my wife and I traveled on our way to the annual art festival in Fairhope, Ala, where we were one of the nearly 300,000 who attended it.

This set of photos were taken during brief visit with Doug Odom, the Alabama self-taught artist whose home and gallery is near Headland, Ala., which, to be honest, isn’t that near to anything (including Fairhope). By coincidence, the first six years of my life were spent living in a town about 20 miles from where these photos were taken.
