Glam


Sunday my church held Easter services at the historic Alabama Theatre.  Before the service I wandered around and took more photos to add to my growing collection from this grand old place. I have many fond memories of Saturdays spent here when I was growing up.  Built in 1927, it has been lovingly restored and still runs movies and is a popular venue for weddings and concerts.  Today, one of the magnificent chandeliers reflected in the mirrored walls.

Nice composition, & I love the light in this beautiful shot Virginia.
& I also wanted to say I am thinking of you all & praying for those who have lost loved ones & those who are now homeless from the storms.

I thought that was some kind of giant moth with diaphanous wings! Very pretty!

You mentioned the pattern of a basketball that your g-kids use to lay out their town-scape in the dust. I would love for you to make that photograph. It would be very tactile.

However, in your 'downsize' surely this is the type of item, consigned to memory?

I will keep the Paris photos coming, just on one of the other blogs not "Sydney Eye'.

I'm glad you explained what I'm looking at here.

A grand chandelier for a grand space. A real knock-out.
