Did you really think I could pass us that title? Of course not. Charlie Thigpen is improving the real estate all around his garden shop, Garden Gallery at the Pepper Place every time I'm down there. Isn't this clever!
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.
I am a former elementary school teacher, a full-time photographer, part-time painter, lover of all things French ( whose français is slowly improving), obsessive Paris traveler, enthusiastic art museum volunteer, grateful community volunteer, and grandmother to 5 delightful grandchildren.
