May I just say once again, how many doors Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo has opened for me? Today's post is another example of how fortunate I am to be able to go out into my community and photograph and write about the wonderful things taking place all over this city.
Saturday I was invited to visit Willow Woods Community Center in Birmingham's Woodlawn neighborhood. It was parent orientation for an exciting new program. Thanks to Church of the Highland's Dream Center outreach program, some mighty excited little girls are going to be taking ballet lessons for the very first time. Saturday the Briarwood Presbyterian's Exaltation company performed for the future ballerinas and their families. It was thrilling to watch. Their enthusiastic ballet instructor, Adair Whetstone, happens to be a dear friend, and she has offered to let me come back to class and take some more photographs as these young girls begin to live out their dreams. Lucky girls, lucky parents, lucky me!
Today, City Daily Photo Bloggers all around the world are putting their unique spin on this BIG theme.
Note: As this blog has expanded my circle of friends around the world , it has increased my personal awareness of how natural disasters ( not to mention political ones) affect them. Right now our friends in California are living through the nightmare of devastating wildfires. We worry for them, their neighbors and the heroes that fight the fires around the clock.
