Men At Work



Thanks to the generosity of many, many people, corporations and the City of Birmingham, 7 million dollars has been raised to save the 100 year old Lyric Theatre.  For those of you who have followed my blog for years, you've seen the good, the bad, and the very ugly.  I have been fortunate to have gotten inside for photos for about 4years.   Since that time, I've been able to go back and even take fellow photographers to Shoot The Lyric.  Now the renovation has begun, and I am thrilled to be asked to document the process. Last Tuesday, Glenny Brock took me inside to meet the crew and learn the drill. Hard hats required and I can't wear my cute boots next time. Got it!

Here's a look at one of my new best friends. They have made the scaffolding safe for us, and I made sure Glenny told them how lucky they were to be helping renovate this Birmingham treasure.  I will be sharing more photos. I hope I won't bore you,  but this is a project close to my heart and a part of Birmingham's history.  I want you along for the ride!

Nice shot. Photo,s of working builders you don't see often on the internet. Keep them coming.

Documenting the process as they go along is a wonderful idea, and I look forward to what else you have in store.

There is not a chance you are going to bore us. Fun, yes, but are you getting paid for providing the documentation?
