Sloss Furnace on a Sunday afternoon

Sloss Furnace…i was told in 1993 that it is a Birmingham (Alabama) landmark that everyone should see. In 1995, i bought a house & got a job that took me past Sloss Furnace twice a day for two years. Did i visit? No. People promised to take me, but it didn’t happen, until i met…

Farmer’s Market in Birmingham, Alabama

Norton’s Florist

I have always photographed flowers in their gardens, or tucked away in their pots, all set up for the viewer. Which has always made for some amazing photographs. Yet, i’ve always seen the ‘after’, never the process of what it takes to create it. The front area of the shop looked like most florist shops,…
