1. Name, occupation, years in LR, neighborhood: Randall Lee; Photographer for Contemporary Imaging; 28 years; Southwest LR.

2. What inspired you to start Humans of Little Rock? The Humans of Little Rock Project gives me the pleasure of showcasing the positive side that Little Rock residents have to offer.  This city and surrounding areas has so many kind and interesting people and I feel that most people who don't live here or know our people intimately often have a different perspective of what kind of people we have here.  So my goal is to randomly meet people of Little Rock and to just talk about what makes them unique and to highlight what makes them so special to our community.  

3. What is, hands down, your favorite meal you can only get in Little Rock? YaYa's has the best brunch buffet I've ever tasted. I love going there on Sunday and listening to their live jazz music while choosing from so many great options. The last time my wife Britni and I went there I was telling her that I was upset with myself because I ate way too much after I was already full. We can sit there for hours just talking and enjoying the music while waiting for our food to digest just to eat and do it all over again.

4. It's a Saturday -- what's on your agenda? Wake up and enjoy breakfast with my wife and kids. If it's a warm day out we always enjoy going out and doing something fun like going to the park or activities at the library.  The kids really enjoyed the gymnastics demonstration at the Hilary Clinton Children's Library and Learning Center that opened last year. 

5. Finish this sentence: My perfect evening in Little Rock involves...having a productive day and being able to wind down and recharge in a relaxing environment.  That's one of the great things about Little Rock.  There are plenty of things to do to keep you busy but it's not so overwhelming that it causes more stress on you.  I like to keep things pretty simple and this is a perfect place to do just that.
