A Change of Pace



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.

The Perfect Bloom


The dogwoods blossom in time for Easter almost every year. This year Easter comes late and we held our breath,  but they are still glorious!

On my Facebook Virginia Jones Photography page, I did a little series from the Egg Hunt I photographed last Sunday at Independent Presbyterian Church.  I saved this sweet photograph to share with you.

Late Night in BIrmingham


The Art Deco Watts Building on 20th Street, was built in 1927.  I've always loved it and thought the top looked like a church.

Sunday Church Series - Palm Crosses


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.

Rooftop Garden



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.

Second in the Series - The Student Artists



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!
