Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo Celebrates SIX YEARS!









Today is the BADP's SIXTH Anniversary !!! It's hard to believe that I've been doing this every day since 2008.  Monsieur Google says that's  2,209 posts.  I am sure I say this every year but I owe a huge MERCI to Eric Tenin, Paris Daily Photo, and the genius behind the City Daily Photo Blog community.  I started with Eric's blog and then realized I might be able to do one myself.  The simple act of creating this blog has opened the world to me,  and I've made so many friends around the world who are bloggers like me or just blog readers. My life has been enriched beyond measure by your blogs, your comments and your friendships.

Today I thought it would be fun to share my first post!

 Nothing says summer like sunflowers!  These were spotted at the Pepper Place Market on 2nd Avenue South.  Open each Saturday morning from May through September, it's the place to go for the freshest homegrown produce, homemade cakes and pies, handcrafted items, live music, and cooking demos by local chefs.  Grab your camera cause it's great place to take pictures.  6/20/08

I've just had a nice trip back in time Virgina... I'm so pleased that anything I said made a difference and that after all this time you still recall it. We shared some banter and for that I will always remain grateful...
