Fifteen Thousand Paper Cranes.......


blow gently in the breeze high above Railroad Park. This Birmingham Art Peace Project installation features origami cranes folded with love by individuals, and groups from as far away as Japan to honor the 50th Anniversary of the Birmingham church bombing victims. This is a very special weekend in Birmingham. This is just one that I will feature throughout the weekend around town.

Such a difficult shot - for so many reasons - but you did it. Beautiful.

You must have shimmied up one of those poles!
Fabulous!

Thank you, Virginia, for bringing this anniversary celebration to me. I look forward to your other posts, too.

love these and what they symbolize ... a few years back a friend made 1000 of these to string around the seating area of an in-home wedding .. it was quite wonderful
