July 21, 2013  B is for a Bar in Birmingham! 1st B - bar, 2nd B bartender, 3rd B Birmingham.  Birmingham, Alabama seems like my second home - I'm there so much.  It is a beautiful town, and since I'm there so much - I've make myself at home at the hotel.  This is Lauren the bartender at the Wxyz bar inside the lobby of the Aloft hotel where I stay when I'm in Birmingham.  She's so cute, energetic and just a sweetheart.  She has an 18 month old little boy that I always get to see new photos of when I'm there.  He is a cutie too.  The Aloft hotels are kind of funky in a way, but I really like them.  They are comfortable and full of friendly people.  Everytime I arrive, they all know me by name and take such good care of me.  Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my photos last week!!!

12/27/14 - My granddaughter, Quinn, as Arabian Coffee in the Nutcracker, Dec. 2014; she's 16.  The situation was difficult, as the light was generally quite low, she was moving, my vantage point was far on the left side, and I was handholding the camera and not using the flash.  I was pretty pleased with most of the images, given the difficult shooting conditions.  Thanks for your comments on my shot of the door handle.  Much appreciated!

11/05/09 - Historic Yates Mill Pond at Sunset  I posted a picture of the actual water wheel in my gallery earlier this year.  In this picture, you can't see the wheel, but you get this lovely reflection instead.  After Joey's flu shot, I decided to make the best of a wonderful afternoon and go for a quick hike around the mill pond.  Unfortunately, we were really there a good 30-60 minutes too late to be taking good pictures.  I had to bump up the saturation on this one to improve the color.      This is the same shot taken on 10/26 last year when the sun was better and the tree closest to the mill still had yellow leaves on it.  http://fotomom.smugmug.com/Yates-Mill-Pond/Yates-Mill-Photo-Contest-2009/7088136_34LZC#454338880_TdGL2  In both cases, the sky looks better in the reflection than in the final shot.  I'm not sure how to get around that...especially in last night's picture when the sky really didn't have much blue in it.      We still have not had a frost or freeze at my house, but it look like it's coming Friday night into Saturday.  I am storing ceramic bird baths and pots and taking in fragile plants that I can save.      I sure wish today was Friday...  HAGD,  Maryann
9.2.09 - Snow and Rain  We woke up to fresh snow again this morning, and although it was cold it was quite a pleasant day. That is, until I decided to go out and get a Daily. I had hoped to take some night snow shots around the Cathedral, but it was raining heavily! The last time I took some photos here I got a ghostly biker zooming through the shot, tonight it was a bedraggled walker. Apart from a crop to get rid of boring foreground this is straight out of camera. Despite me standing over it with an umbrella some rain managed to get on the lens, but I think it adds to the watery scene (well that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).  For those that like to keep an eye on our Monday Challenges mine is here;  http://www.lightanddreamsphotography.com/gallery/7093288_hSxt4#470456288_tRiRP
