My brother asked what I liked about Gervais.  Part of it is just an affinity for small towns—small town bars are the best, country roads are great fun, and I love small town people.  They can be so wide eyed.  But in Gervais you can really walk around freely--  there are alleys throughout the town that wind between the homes, and I feel like there isn’t a back yard I couldn’t get a look at if I wanted.  In trying to take pictures, that’s pretty valuable.  There’s just a lot of un-claimed space too.  Vacant lots sure, but also just open space.  I went down there originally because I wanted to find Russians, but I really just found small town America maybe.
