Vermont: Land of maple syrup, ski slopes, covered bridges and snow-capped mountains. Few people would associate the Green Mountain State with the didgeridoo, a wind instrument native to Australia. Until they've heard Michael "Tree" Sampson, that is.
Sampson's a one-man band who performs daily on Church Street in downtown Burlington.
100 Words is a series in which photographers describe their work, in their own words. Skye Chalmers has been a professional photographer for 20 years. Born "in a drafty farmhouse" in Weston, Vt., he writes, he still lives in the state "with his superwoman and their redheaded twin toddlers."
