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

Chez Fonfon has a nice boules court in the back. This is similar to pétanque but I'm correct, boules is played with clay balls and pétanque with metal balls. A fun way to pass the time while dining outside. This day, a cooperative waiter showed me his style!

Independent Presbyterian's Bible Times Marketplace as I was leaving, the tribes were meeting under their tents enjoying their lunch. I heard the sweetest sounds of a violin and followed the music to this tent where this musician was playing for the entire group. How sweet the sound.......

Yesterday I visited the Children's Fresh Air Farm in Bluff Park, to have a look at what was going on at Independent Presbyterian's Bible Times Marketplace. The pottery shed was a great idea. After photos I was able to make my first pot ever on a wheel. Fun times at Bible Times!

My good friend and talented Birmingham photographer Larry O. Gay, posts photos on Facebook with the title "Art Is Where You Find It". I'm always inspired by LG's great eye. Today, the compost bin at Oliver Elementary's outdoor classroom created by Jones Valley Teaching Farm, caught my eye on a recent visit. Loved the colors!

Yesterday the city of Birmingham, along with fire departments from stations across Jefferson County said goodbye to Birmingham Fire Chief Ivor Brooks, Sr. who gave 32 years in service.
The area around the funeral at the 16th Avenue Baptist Church was lined with more fire trucks than I could count. It was a beautiful tribute to Chief Brooks.

Lyric Theatre. When I first stepped inside, years ago, she was in terrible disrepair but as they say, "Her bones were good." Since then, I've been back and documented the continuing clean up and now the full blown restoration. Recently I was fortunate to be allowed to come inside and actually stand on the scaffolding and see this gorgeous chandelier up close. I've photographed it previously, but this view was the best!
