Birmingham Rouge IV - The Warehouse



Spotted in a warehouse under renovation in downtown Birmingham. Of course the red caught my eye! May I just say how satisfying it is to find places such as this that I find visually appealing as a photographer and yet highlight the wonderful work going on here in downtown Birmingham to bring it back to life!

UPDATE: Well welcome back to my Followers who have been MIA in Bloggerworld since yesterday. I see some new faces! :)

Put it in your diary to return to next September, V. Will be an interesting assessment: were the renovators in tune with the original building?

It's amazing what we can see when the camera becomes a part of us.

An ode to the color red. I have a red pic for you coming soon. Still, Blogger has no answers to the missing Followers box.

DL,
I don't know where they went. The prob is how to let BLogger know?

B2,
Right!

Olivier,
I had to use Babelfish a bit for this comment, but merci beaucoup! The light around the door is rather eerie!

Julie,
I took a photo last year of an empty store under reno. Now it's a bar! I hope they keep the red in this place!

I like the way there is light coming from behind the door. It gives a really nice effect, like there is something really special on the other side.

Love this photo! I am happy to see the progress going on in Montg. too---renovating old buildings for new purposes.

And, no--I'm really not one of those obnoxious Bama fans! : )

I love the red door and the staircase.
On your Paris blog, I spoke too soon. My followers have now been lost in cyberspace too. What's up?

Jacob said...

I love the red, too!

Are you sure that's a Ware-house? ;-)

Brilliant reds.

If I can get the photo I've got a red one I know you'll love! :)

marley said...

Sorry, just re-read my comment and, you know how my mind works (in the gutter), it could be thought I was being very rude! Lol!

Diederick said...

Oh...yes! you have the right eye alright!! Excellent photos. In both the viewer would like to open that door and also climb those stairs!!

Thérèse said...

You are really "red tuned" Virginia. The light is awesome.

stunning photos and light once again. Your work is great. Thanks for your comments on my website regarding the slot canyon photos. I am glad you are enjoying them.

I love the red door and the staircase.

Jilly said...

The light coming through the door really makes this photo although it'd be beautiful even without it. Love the colours and the staircase.
