Winter Sky

I"ll be very happy if those clouds don't have snow to dump on our city. Hoping my readers up the East Coast stay safe and warm this weekend.

Brick By Brick

Many of the common areas at Birmingham's Railroad Park feature wire mesh holding bricks uncovered when the park was built. A beautiful/industrial reuse of Birmingham's history.

Double the Excitement

Taking in the grand reopening of the historic Lyric Theatre on Thursday evening from their grandmother's opera box. They traveled all the way from Denver to share it with their grandparents and family. A great night for our city!

Cleve Eaton

Welcome to Birmingham Through My Lens. Today is the first post and I hope you will stop by often.This blog was previously Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo but on January 2, after almost 8 years as a City Daily Photo blog I made the decision to stop in order to give myself time to pursue new directions in my photography.

I've been waiting to find just the right image for DAY 1, and last night at the grand reopening of the historic 102 year old Lyric Theatre, the curtain opened to this. Cleve Eaton was just one of the many performers in the talent packed vaudeville show.  Cleve has played with Ramsey Lewis and Count Basie and to quote the program, "He has become a consummate bassist, producer, composer, publisher, arranger and head of his own recording company."

The Sun Has Set...

on another year, but also on Birmingham Alabama Daily Photo. Since its inception in June, 2008, I have, according to Blogger, posted 2,716 photos here! Along the way, I have met so many dear bloggers and readers, more than I can possibly count. The City Daily Photo community is a talented and caring group of photobloggers and thanks to this opportunity, I now have friends around the world, many whom I've met in person over the last 7 years. For all the perks, the daily responsibility of taking and posting a photo has started to drive my photography, and I feel I need a bit more freedom to explore new genres in order to grow as a photographer.

The good news is that this blog will just move to Birmingham Through My Lens ( the address will remain the same)! I won't post every single day, but I hope all of your who have followed BADP continue to come by and have a look at my latest images.

I thank you for your loyalty, comments, encouragement and most of all, your friendship.  Here's to a new and creative 2016 from Birmingham!

CDP Theme Day - Photo of the Year

The first day of January, City Daily Photobloggers around the world choose the one photo they consider their "photo of the year". I chose Millie and her dad. This is a special photograph for me as I love Millie and her family very much and for me, this photo is a mixture of joy, trust, and pure luck on my part.

Happy New Year!
