UTAH Vistas of hoodoos are seen along the Queens Garden Trail in Bryce Canyon National Park. Richard Maschmeyer, 2016
NEW YORK As part of JR’s Inside Out project, New Yorkers and visitors were asked to take self-portraits in Times Square at the site of the first-ever photo booth almost 100 years ago. The resulting 6,000 images were pasted on Duffy Square. Stephen Alvarez, 2013
ROBIN ROBERTS In Mississippi, the Gulf Coast is majestic and serene, the food is fried, and warmth is everywhere. I don’t mean just the weather but there’s warmth in the music of the blues, in the soul service gospel I heard at my church as a child, and in the people. When you see someone in Pass Christian, the quintessential small town where I grew up, you stop and wave. New to town? A neighbor will bring a Bundt cake. That’s just what you do.
We were a military family and I grew up moving all the time. But when it came time for my father to retire from the U.S. Air Force, the Roberts family got to decide where we would put down our roots. I am proud to say, we chose Mississippi. It is home.
