Freedom



This was photographed at Kelly Ingram Park, just across the street from Birmingham's Civil Rights Institute and the 16th Street Baptist Church. This week, President Obama declared Birmingham's Civil Rights a National Monument As we honor the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. today, it's especially fitting.

Winter's Lacy Fingers


Birmingham, Alabama is glorious in the spring and summer. It's green and lush and full to the brim with blooming shrubs and flowers. The winter is to me, just a intriguing. I love the bare branches, winter's lacy fingers. Tonight I snapped this as the sun was setting in my neighborhood.

Cabin Fever - Day 3


Meeps and I  have been in the house for three days due to the icing on all the roads and sidewalks.   Would you like to see a picture my cat???

It's Sticking!!!!!



The two words that either strike fear in the hearts of Alabama drivers or glee in the hearts of children. Tonight I can report that after a spattering of sleet at noon, it appears that we will be now having a somewhat respectable Alabama snowfall. It's sticking and tomorrow I'll carefully step out with my camera and maybe have some current photos for you. Tonight I share a photo from two years ago, just outside my window.

Maybe....Maybe Not

This is the game we play here in Alabama. We have unseasonably warm weather, meaning no coats yet, then BAM, we get this hint of a snow tomorrow night and the whole state goes into lock down. The max accumulation here is suppose to be MAYBE 2 inches, more likely less, but the stores are running out of milk and bread. I'm more concerned about my wine supply. Stay tuned. If we get a "dusting" I"ll be out on the sidewalk snapping photos!

Winter in the Gardens

When all of the fall leaves and colorful blooms have fallen, lichens finally get their chance to shine.

Well Worn

This dear little pair of shoes was found at my friend Barbara Adkins' wonderful antique shop, Black Sheep Antiques, in Harpersville, AL. You should go for a visit!

Birmingham Urban Mural



This beautiful mural was started in 1996 to celebrate the Olympic venues here in Birmingham by Space One Eleven. The second panel was finished in 2000. It's a jewel on the side of Boutwell Auditorium that faces our Birmingham Museum of Art. I love it!

Ready to Walk Down the Aisle


Yesterday I have some big fun. I was asked to photograph a bride in her finery at my church before her big day. Beautiful bride, no pressure....my kind of shoot!

All Decked Out


This lion and his mate are always in the holiday spirit in my Forest Park neighborhood. I snapped this one year when we had a quick southern snow!
