This weekend marks the 31st Annual Magic City Art Connectionin Linn Park. Oh it's a great gathering of wonderful artists and craftsmen, but also dancers, musicians and creative art opportunities for children. Today, a beautiful dancer. Stay tuned for more tastes of the MCAC.
Birmingham is a beautiful city, especially in the spring. I will confess that I probably overdo the spring flower photos every single year, so today, we take a break. Yesterday I discovered a very cool yard and had a great time photographing all sorts of interesting things. This gentleman is just one example. Of course more to come. Oh, and by the way, we might return to spring flowers again tomorrow. I'm not quite done.
Today Christians celebrate Palm Sunday. At Independent Presbyterian Church, the ladies of the church lovingly make each and every palm cross that will be pinned on each person attending services today. It's a art and a tradition that is past down from one generation to another.
This house in my neighborhood has taken the term "rooftop garden" to a whole new level. During the warmer months there's always a nice field of green grass up there but the red tulips this spring were an added attraction.
Once I walked inside Space One Eleven, I was thrilled to find some of the student artists hard at work. What a wonderful place this is that gives students in the Birmingham School System a place to find their talent and fly!
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.
