Sweet Toes Alabama!

As most of you know after 6 years, my personal, professional and blog lives often collide!  Yesterday was very special.  Sweet Hill's baptism and such sweet tootsies.

I'm Not Sure

This could be a gizmo, but then again it could be a thingamajig.

Chess Hands

Sometimes watching chess players, the hands are more interesting than the moves.

A New Home

I stopped by M Power's Community Garden in Avondale a few days ago and was fascinated with the dried okra pods.  BTW, if you don't know okra, you're not from around here.  When I loaded my photos, I was delighted to see a critter had made a new home.

The Tin Man

Last week I was captivated by Birmingham artist Donna Sophronia-Sims' Cast of Characters at Artwalk 2014.  Each unique character, made from found objects brought a smile.

How Sweet the Sound

Imagine my delight when I arrived at Doug and Sandy Tilt's fabulous loft on Saturday morning before Art Walk commenced, and was greeted by the beautiful sounds of electric violinist Bethany Borg.  Her music was magical and the light falling on her exquisite face begged me to photograph her, over and over and over.

Yesterday afternoon, Independent Presbyterian Church held a community cookout after their 5:00 o'clock service.  It was a great afternoon full of hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, live music, and face painting and the all time favorite "jumpy jump" for the kids. It was a wonderful way for church members to welcome the neighborhood. Might I add, I had a BALL!

Another Great Artwalk!

Since 2002, Birmingham's Artwalk has been one of our city's very best events! This year was no exception.  I shot this through the window this morning at WELD.  Last night,  creative kids had fun making their mark on the event.

The Last Flips Of Summer

Well to be perfectly honest, here in Birmingham, flip flops are still going strong. We don't recognize AUTUMN for quite a while.

Thank you Alley Bulka and your Wacky Nanny Art Camp kiddos for this photo!

Meet Farmer Hamm

I"ve been photographing and chatting with Farmer Hamm for years at the Pepper Place. Now days, I get to enjoy his produce year long when I dine at Johnny's in Homewood.  Tim buys only the freshest Alabama produce and he and Farmer Hamm are a great team. Note the hat.

P.S. The whole fried okra is to die for.

Back To School - The Line Up

If it's anything you need to know in kindergarten it's how to line up. These kiddos nailed it!

Presentation is Everything.....

 even at the Pepper Place Market. Sanctuary Farms always nails it for me and my camera. Their produce is homegrown and fabulous as well.
