Sunday Church Series - St. Symeon Orthodox Church

St. Symeon Orthodox Church recently moved into their new sanctuary on Claremont Avenue. This beautiful mosaic of Mother and Child was moved from the old site to the side of the new church. I pass it almost every day and love it's new location.

Know Thy Children

The Pepper Place Market has it figured out. Families flock there every Saturday morning, the parents love the music, the art, the crafts, the fresh produce, but the kids...not so much. Once they've had a Steel City Pop and run through the mister, they are probably dragging their feet and asking the dreaded question, "When are we going home???" Problem solved at this tent sponsored by the McWane Center and Fruit Shoot. A tub full of Legos etc. to keep kids safe and their hands busy!

It's National Down Syndrome Awareness Month....Yippee!

As many of you who read this blog now, I have had the pleasure of photographing the Bell Center Run at the Mercedes Marathon for the last several years. The Bell Center for Early Intervention provides a variety of support for children ages birth to 3 years who are at risk for developmental delay. Named for their former director Betty Bell, this is a loving place that provides emotional and physical support for their precious children and their families. Many, but certainly not all, are Down Syndrome kiddos, but this month it's all about bringing awareness to this chromosome abnormalities that affects approximately 1 in 1000 babies born each year. Today one of the very excited Bell Runners, there may be more this month!

City Daily Photo Theme Day - Shelter

This bent rebar covered in muscadines provides some nice shelter for this pup who hangs out at Jones Valley Teaching Farm in downtown Birmingham.

Today I join my fellow City Daily Photobloggers around the world who have posted their take on this month's theme right HERE.

Light Up My Life!

This very cool light table at Bart's Artventure at the Birmingham Museum of Art is all about having fun with art. This area is just for kids, but I wanted to throw my camera down and join them!

Sunday Church Series - St. Paul's Cathedral

This lovely original art by my Birmingham artist friend Sarah Soule Webb, has been donated for auction to benefit Community Kitchens,  but this is just one of many beautiful cathedrals she has painted.

Evening With Arthur Price

Thursday evening I attended the opening of Arthur Price's newest work at the newly renovated Gallery 1930, in English Village. Art and his wife Caren are friends and I think he is one of the finest artist I know. If you are in the Birmingham area, don't miss this beautiful exhibit.

Industrial Decay

Months ago, I was lucky enough to visit Wade Sand and Gravel. Thank you again Chris Fennell, for showing me around. I love revisiting photos and this one caught my eye. I have no idea what this dial was used for but loved the image.

Kiss The Cooks!

My friends the Adams, had some very special visitors last week, their adorable grandtwins who flew in from Colorado. They decided to host a little bake sale of their homemade goodies to earn money for a shopping trip to Smith's Variety. My Birmingham readers understand this! Eva and I had a grand time shopping for cookies, cupcakes and dog treats. How could we resist these two?? I can't wait to hear how the profits were spent!

Birmingham Boulangerie

No, I've taken you all to Paris. This gorgeous bread can be purchased at the Pepper Place Market every Saturday. There are usually at least three stalls selling homemade bread that is pretty close to a Paris boulangerie.
