A quick trip through the gardens with my friend Linda yesterday, found us in the Southern Living Garden. The hosta knocked me out!

Vintage Power to the People
This week I had the privilege to photographing the old Thomas Jefferson Hotel that is now under renovation. After standing empty since 1983, this 87 year old treasure will be transformed into apartments and on the ground level, an event venue in the near future. Just another soon to be jewel in our downtown area. Many years ago, I attended band parties there after college football games at Legion Field.
A special thank you to Merrill Stewart of Stewart Perry Construction and their Tom Dill who patiently walked me through as many floors as I wanted to explore.

I take many photos here and in Paris, but I love the STAIR (Start The Adventure In Reading) program. I am so fortunate to be able to not only photograph the program at IPC, but also the STAIR sites across this city. Such great work with loving tutors helping our struggling readers. The love the tutors and students share is amazing.

Birmingham Through My Lens On The Road
I spent Sunday in Harpersville, just a hop, skip and a jump south of town. I thrilled to be asked to photograph the day with the Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation's event at The Chancellor House. This historic home is a delight inside and the grounds and gardens as well. Barbara Adkins has lovingly restored her family's 1840's home and furnished it with wonderful antiques, many from her fabulous Black Sheep Antiques in town. Chef Scott Peacock was the featured speaker and signed his wonderful southern cookbook, The Gift of Southern Cooking. Stay tuned for many photos to come.

Asleep at the Wheel

Pizitz Department Store a zillion times. I never noticed this finely carved mural until Bayer Properties' Tom Walker, pointed out the cleaning process on a recent trip there to photograph. Such a treasure that is being carefully restored.
