Talk About Your Crazy Weather


Well today the high in sunny Birmingham was 75F! Tonight at 6:00, I snapped this through the car window at church....POURING. Tomorrow, they claim the temps won't get above 34F. Seriously, what's up with all this?

Connecting



Elizabeth MacQueen's beautiful sculpture,Four Spirits, is a tribute to the four young girls whose lives were cut short when the 16th Avenue Baptist Church was bombed in 1963. MacQueen's piece was installed at Kelly Ingram Park to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the bombing. I have photographed it many times. Often I find it becomes a sacred space for those seeing it for the first time.

Late Breaking Snow!



I was headed to bed when I had one last look outside and saw snow falling. Children, home from school today, waited and watched, waited and watched but at last there are flakes! From my balcony.

Snow Joke?



You need to know this. Here in Birmingham, we get maybe one snowfall a year. It usually lasts a day or two at the most. Last January 29, the weather gurus predicted a light dusting and what we got in spades was what is now dubbed, Snowmageddon! It shut the city down and thousands were stranded far from home in what was a huge event in our city. Oh I hear you all up there in the north snickering. Well we are a hilly city built between two mountains, no snow removal because we live in the south, and nobody knows what snow tires are. So we were in a predicament that we and the weather forecasters, have not forgotten. For the past week, we've had scare, after scare of ice? snow? icy snow? We've dodged the bullet but maybe, just maybe, tomorrow afternoon or night, we might seem some inches. Don't you worry about us. We have all been to the Piggly Wiggly and stocked up on our snow staples of choice. Some grab bread and milk. Others grab wine, wine and potato chips.

Today's shot is from a bank of snow photos I've had stashed for years. How many can I reasonably share in a week or so? I live for these days when I can drag out some more favorites. Stay tuned. You might get more new snow or you might get some potato chip/wine photos for a few days.

Mercedes Marathon Bell Center Runners 2015- The Teaser


Yes, today is the teaser. I photographed the Bell Center Runner Event as part of the Mercedes Marathon weekend yesterday for the third year. If I had to choose a Birmingham event that I love the most...this is it in spades. Today, Chambers as she shoots off the starting line. She and her family are very special to me. For the next few days you will have more precious kiddos to ooh and ahhh over.
