I was shuffling around in my archives the other day and found this photo. It brings back bittersweet memories in several ways. I was meeting my friend Sara for coffee to help her plan a trip to Paris. She had a marvelous trip with her husband and daughter not long after. We lost her last year and we all miss her a lot. That morning we met at Forest Perk Coffee in my neighborhood. They've closed recently. I'm grateful for this photograph, that brings back the memories of that special day.
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.
