Leeds, One Year Later

On this date last year, at 3:25 p.m. CST, the Amtrak train, the Crescent Line, carrying Kathryn and I from New Orleans back to Providence raced through the town of Leeds, Alabama, the town where I spent most of my childhood and a considerable bit of my twenties. All the photos were snapped between 3:25 and 3:26 p.m. And if Leeds doesn't look like much, that's because it sure as hell isn't. But, still, I miss it. The factory you can see in the photographs manufactures cement, and that plant sort of dominated the landscape of my childhood.

All for now,
