That's fine art photography. Colours are in harmony and the vertical lines boost attention.

I have enjoyed the unofficial golden colour theme too this week. The photograph of the image is a piece of art in itself with those steams of light. Almost an optical illusion looking at this. Check my post today no need to comment but I'd you to read my adventure yestesterday.

The Birmingham Marathon/Half Marathon course is a delightful and interesting tour of your fair city.
Special thanks to Independent Presbyterian for the opportunity to run past your lovely sanctuary.
We will post a few more Birmingham pictures this weekend.

I love those champagne colors. Now leave the room because I want to talk to your mom.

Virginia said...

For my B'ham readers, Sunshine was here this past weekend for the Marathon and posted a photo of my church on her blog! Small world!

PS She came from what I call the North Pole (Minnesota)


AH,
How long do I need to stay in the other room?

What a beautiful photograph. Love the golden colours, the light, the reflections. Beautiful composition and those objects look so interesting. A lovely setting for them.

Superb image, Virginia! Dazzling color and light, perfect composition with delicate detail. Indeed, fine art itself. Thank you.

Like a dazzling hall of mirrors. Lovely.

Bob Crowe said...

Now that's a pretty damn good picture. I have no idea of the physical scale without a description. You could have saved this for theme day.

Virginia said...

Bob,
Does your comment make my head look BIG???? Thanks my friend.. I have some ideas for Theme Day. Hope I haven't used my best. That has happened you know.

Thanks everyone. A special thanks to my producer/manager Wayne who came up with the clever title. I was at a total loss. He gets paid a lot for his talent, trust me.

Beautiful Photo. I love the golden color. So elegant! I found your blog through a comment Firelight made at another special blog I follow - Life at Willow Manor. My boyfriend's mother just moved to Alabama, she is very close to Birmingham, and I am very interested in the area. Your blog is wonderful!
