Corinne Cox's Creative Whirl
Today we have a guest blogger/photographer...Eva Singleton! She and brother Davis joined me for a wonderful afternoon at Aldridge Botanical Gardens in Hoover yesterday. These gardens are lovely anytime of the year, but right now there is a most unusual art exhibit. The Alabama Psychological Association Foundation sponsored "Heads Up Alabama! Psychology Promotes Healthy Living". Twenty Alabama artists were chosen to put their creative touches on 3 foot tall ....heads! This is a not to be missed exhibit. Originally these pieces were placed throughout the gardens, but rain damaged the stands so they are now being placed around the covered pavillion. Some remain nearby. The exhibit runs through August 31.
My Eva has shown a lot of interest in photography lately. In fact she's taken over her mom's camera , probably a good thing. Today she has chosen two of her photographs to share with you. I captured the photographer at work shooting her favorite piece - Back to Nature by Tracie Noles-Ross. Eva says she likes this piece because " it has people and animals on it and it's just cool!" I'll have some more to share in the weeks to come.
Merci ma chère Eva for my new profile photo as well!
