Take a small town in southern Alabama, and a young lady, just slightly out of step. Add gnarly family trees, entrenched traditions, and everyone living with skeletons in their closets - welcome to Gallagher. There one will find an extraordinary cast of insane characters. And, it could only happen in the South.

Photography Post - Blue House

A blue house, almost lost in the brush in Fort Motte, South Carolina, a ghost town now, having two claims to fame: one being briefly considered for the capitol of the state of South Carolina and the other where Julia Peterkin, the 1928 Pulitzer Prize winning author of Scarlet Sister Mary, taught in the local school. She was married to William Peterkin and lived with him on his cotton plantaton, Lang Syne, near Fort Motte.
