"I'm too sexy for my goggles"
Wednesday my photography buddy Bill called me up and gave me a "hot" tip . The National Conference on Cast Iron Art was getting cranked up at Sloss Furnaces. I was a little skeptical but he persuaded me to grab my camera and get on down there. Merci Bill! I wouldn't have missed that for the world. What I found were teams from all over the country building their own make shift furnaces in order to actually pour iron! Birmingham owes it's nickname the *"Magic City" to its rapid growth due to the production of iron at Sloss Furnaces. No longer active, Sloss is a National Historic Landmark. On Wednesday night at 6:00, furnaces were lit once again. It was something to see. Today a sampling. I can promise this won't be the last!
