Yesterday I had to tackle a job I've put off for too long. I needed a tag for my new car. Jefferson County has experienced some "unfortunate cutbacks" so that means *long waits. I decided that I'd make the best of it and packed my iPod and camera and set off at daybust. As I exited the building, the guards graciously allowed me a few quick shots!
* On good advice from my daughter Melissa, I was there at 8:00 when they opened and it went surprisingly well!
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.
