Legion Fieldin Birmingham's Graymont neighborhood was dedicated in 1927 and was the site of many many college and high school games. Auburn and Alabama played several games a year there and annually the Iron Bowl until 2000. In 1996 is was a soccer venue for the Summer Olympics held in Atlanta. Of note, I participated in the Opening Ceremonies here in '96 myself. Talk about your 15 minutes of fame!
A pair of these limestone lions flanks the entrance on the south side of the stadium. Shhhhhhh!
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.
