We southerners covet bittersweet. After finding a nice stand of it once on a road trip to Tennessee, and trying to drag the sticky vines out of the undergrowth, haul it home, and only to find most of the berries in the bottom of my trunk, hence the name. Whatever your *garden shop wants to charge you for this lovely vine...pay it.
Oak Street Garden Shop for the win!

I"m putting the finishing touches on my newest phototalk, GARDENS OF BIRMINGHAM, and I will include the "Dahlia Lady" as well as the Adama and Clark homes and the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. I love to present my phototalks to civic, church and study clubs, as well as garden clubs.

I"m currently enjoying an online photography class, Creative Workout, with my friend Meredith Mullins who now lives in Paris. Each week she introduces 1-2 well known photographers and we explore their work. She then sends us off with our cameras to complete a homework assignment with their work as our inspiration.
Week 1 was Robert Frank, who was able to capture the essence of a place while often breaking the rules. We were to do the same. I never realized how hard breaking the rules would be for me. I offer up my image taken at Sam's Super Samwiches. The bottles, smack dab in the middle of the photo is in focus while the others, although out of focus, give the viewer reference.
BTW, the BEST HOT DOGS on the planet!

Most of you know that one of my favorite assignments is photographing for STAIR of Birmingham. I'm lucky enough to visit the 13 sites all over Birmingham and capture the essence of this outstanding program for Birmingham students. This week I tagged along to 4 sites. This guy, just made my day. Learning to be a better reader is really the best gift a kid can ever get. Please visit the website of STAIR of Birmingham for more information on how you can become a STAIR tutor AND donate to keep this wonderful program going!
