Transfer of Grace
Transfer of Grace is one of my favorite books of images from the Lowcountry. More moving than the photos are the words that accompany them. The book speaks of this area and how it has been passed onto us. The land is shared with people, animals and weather. This area is ever changing... we should sit back and enjoy the area whenever possible.
My favorite quote from the book is: "The Lowcountry used to be a slow country. Its uniqueness depended on a certian pace, a lilt to life. Dogs could nap on dirt roads; grits weren't instant; conversations weren't measured in cell phone minutes. Killing time was never wasting time."
