 "People forget about the old fuddy-duddies around here." I saw Miss Lee Alexander while walking to my truck after photographing a local school's 25th birthday. She sat quietly behind a chain linked fence watching the kids at the school carnival. She told me the kids were supposed to come over to her home after to sing but was doubtful that would happen. "Just let them have fun," Miss Alexander said.  Originally from Durham North Carolina, Miss Alexander says she has been a "figurative Savanian" since 1969. Before coming here she was an archivalist at Duke where she dealt largely with historical hand written documents. She decided to move to Savannah though to take a position at a local school. Miss Alexander told me she immediately fell in love with the city's buildings and squares after being picked up from the airport on her first visit.  Before we parted ways I asked if I could take her picture. Miss Alexander agreed warning me that she didn't want to waste any of my film. Afterwards she said, "Thanks. No one has seen the need to take my picture in a long time. It's good for my morale." This is for you Lee Alexander! For your morale and to remember the "old fuddy-duddies."

 Scott Hellen, from Boston Massachusetts, plays wheelchair basketball with kids at The Philmont Training Center (PTC) during a disability obstacle course. Hellen has been unable to walk without assistance of a wheelchair or crutches for 17 years but still stays active riding his rowing bike and hiking with the local Boy Scout Troop. The event was put on at PTC in order to raise awareness about how it is to live with a disability in hopes that it will lead to councels focusing more on accommodating their own scouts with disabilities.
