Good News For Birmngham!



I fell in love with the Florentine Building when I first got serious about photography.  I knew it was a fabulous old treasure and heard that it was due a facelift.  Well five years later..........it's happening!  This week it was announced that this beautiful building,  built in the 1920's,  is going to be renovated. Read all about it right here. I"ll keep you posted on the progress.

And, when we love to photograph things, we learn to "look up."

If we are lucky enough to live, where there are still older building, there is a treasure trove, Up-There. :-)))

Older buildings were built with love and care and..... added 'fancies'! Which make for lovely photo ops.
