Today, I went to downtown Burlington with Jenna Strucko and Sarah Dodge to take street photography pictures for Digital Media. I didn’t really expect to find anything to special and was just focused on taking a few good pictures for the class. Once I got to Burlington, however, I spotted a car cleaning service that looked relatively slow. We decided to go inside and see if we could take a few pictures of the old looking shop. As soon as we walked inside, we were greeted by the shop owner, Mr. Henry Barbee who before we could even introduce ourselves was extremely accommodating. After a short conversation, Mr. Barbee informed us that the shop was actually closed and he was just sitting down to lunch with his wife, who was out getting a few groceries. However, instead of asking us to leave, he went on to invite us to stay and take pictures of him and his wife.

After his wife returned, we had a great conversation with Mr. and Mrs. Barbee for almost an hour. Not only did we get some great shots of the Barbee’s but we also had a great time and great conversation full of laughter and enjoyment. I never thought, I could bond so easily and quickly with the people of Burlington without any effort whatsoever. Although we only talked for about an hour, it seemed as though we had known each other for years. This experience at Barbee’s Car Cleaning Service is one I will never forget.
