This is Herman Maurice, a stranger to most, but a friend to some. Herman is perhaps the best known of the street people who spend their days hanging around the fountain area at Five Points South in Birmingham. I'm not sure where Herman sleeps, but he spends most of his days right here. I've shown Herman before here, and Virginia has a nice portrait of him here. While it might be a stretch for me to call him a friend, he is certainly friendly, and I would never call him a stranger.
