    Very intriguing . . . I love their lovely faces. Black and white makes the images more soulful. You have a very good eye.

    Thank you,


  3. Interesting project, good luck on the road…

  4. What an interesting way to view a trip — not as landmarks and scenery but the faces of everyday people along the way. And the slideshow approach works so delightfully here.

  7. Don’t know how I missed this in my reader when it was published a couple of weeks ago. Great photos, except I don’t think my wife will appreciate hers too much — 🙂

    Seeing these brings back fond memories of meeting you guys. Whether we are in Allendale or anywhere, you’ll always have a place to crash if you want it.
