I had some pretty smart folks that guessed Selma Alabama yesterday. Yes, I traveled south of Birmingham to Selma for a blog meeting with Belgian blogger *Anni ( This Is Belgium) and we were greeted by Selma Daily Photo blogger Janet ( Rambling Round) and her cute daughter in law Jenna ( who took this photo). After a lunch full of blog speak we took photos outside by the Alabama River with the Edmund Pettus Bridge, which you saw on yesterday's post. Read about this historical bridge here.
Today I share a photo of the happy bloggers and a look at one of the most beautiful cemeteries I've photographed. For those of you not from these parts, that's Spanish moss hanging from the trees. I could hardly contain my excitement when we drove up and I saw the afternoon light shining through the trees and moss. Oh don't you worry, I'll share a few more photos from Old Live Oak Cemetery in a the days to come.
* If you're wondering what Anni to Alabama, well her husband was born in Auburn and grew up in Thomasville, AL, and graduated from Auburn. He moved to Belgium after law school and the rest is history. He and Anni visit his family here every two years. I'm so glad Anni and I met through my Paris blog and were able to find a spot halfway from Thomasville and B'ham. Selma was just perfect and I was able to meet Janet for the first time as well!
