Looking back at one of Avondale Park's Bicycle Parade and Fishing Rodeo. This little guy was circling the park as best he could.

Today City Daily Photobloggers around the world share their favorite bicycle photos. Have a look right HERE!

City Sunset

My talented artist friend Kevin Irwin's studio looks north towards downtown Birmingham. I liked the reflection of her studio in the window.

Today I again join James' Weekend Reflections right HERE.

Along Morris Avenue

I have admired this gate with the lion heads for many, many years. I've  photographed them every way I know of to get them just right. Morris Avenue is an historic cobble stoned avenue just as you enter downtown Birmingham, off 20th Street. It's famous for the Peanut Depot across the street but this office gate is my favorite.

Well that's one way to describe Fritz Woehle's Garages on Southside. I have visited this most unusual combination of antique/junk/found objects/bar and grill many times. I always find something new. This carousel horse seemed trapped inside wanting to mingle with all of us having lunch that day.

I've Forever Blowing Bubbles!

I do not consider myself a children's photographer by a long shot, but do from time to time for neighbors and friends. Yesterday, three precious girls from my church. Mom had a pretty fabulous plastic bubble machine that took the shoot to another level. (I'm ordering one on Amazon tonight!)

Sunday Church Series- Amazing Grace

... how sweet the sound. This is the old organ at the First Presbyterian Church in Union Point, Georgia. Don't imagine they still use it for services but what a treasure.

Nothing like a popsicle on a hot summer day.

City Views

I am a lucky girl. I have some dear friends whose homes overlook our city from atop Red Mountain. This time of  year it's spectacular.

and the living is easy. Fish are jumpin'....

These fish aren't jumping' but certainly liven up Sweet Peas Garden Shop in Homewood! And not to mention it too HOT to fish!

Rest Home

I love this aged bird house with the ivy growing gracefully across. My friend Jeff's garden abounds with sweet vignettes such as this.

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

Finally, after 2 years, yesterday I got INSIDE Regions Field. This terrific new stadium, just across the street from Railroad Park, opened in April, 2013. I've been dying to get inside ever since. Yesterday I attended a sparsely attended game with my daughter Kathleen and her girls. It was HOT, 98 degrees thank you, but we had a great time and the crowd was enthusiastic. I gave my camera to grand-daughter Lindley so I could concentrate on my heat stroke. Today's photo is hers!
