Photographer's Note

I live in Asheville, North Carolina ~ a small town in the southern highland mountains of Appalachia. The world's third oldest river, the French Broad, runs through town in its way north. And our Blue Ridge Mountains (over 1 billion years old) are also among the oldest in the world ~ second only to the Barberton greenstone belt in South Africa. (By comparison, the Himalayas are positively young.) It is said we have more biodiversity in one square mile than is to be found in all of Europe.

Perhaps because of its very special geography and geology, Asheville has a long history of attracting artists, musicians, and creative individuals. So even though I love to travel, I need only walk downtown to discover people with unusual hair and styles of dress. And for the most part (as you may already know from other shots in my gallery), our natives are very friendly and don't mind being photographed ;)

So here you go, rigoletto ~ the man with the turquoise hair :)
