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 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!)
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!
I have lived in Birmingham most of my life. I think it's a beautiful, friendly, and interesting place to live. I hope that my daily photographs portray the diversity of my hometown in a positive and artistic way.
