City Daily Photo Theme Day - Best of 2013



Today, the first day of January, 2014 the CDP bloggers around the world have chosen the photograph that they feel is the best of 2013.  My choice was easy this year.  Today I repost Addie Mae's Shoes , part of the beautiful sculpture The Four Spirits by Birmingham native Elizabeth Macqueen.  The work was unveiled in September during commemorative events marking the 50 year anniversary of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing that killed for dear little girls.  Macqueen's beautiful sculpture stands at the corner of Kelly Ingram Park, across the street from the church.

Please click HERE to see the images that my fellow CDP blog friends have chosen as their favorites for 2013.

The flowers in the shoes are both startling and very moving when we read your story. I had missed your original post, thanks for sharing it with us again. It is very poignant.

I wish you and your loved ones a very happy year 2014, with lots of trips to Paris of course :)
