Railroad Park

Posted on 3:22 PM by jr cline | 1 comments

A couple of weekends ago, I went with the Birmingham Photo group to Railroad Park.

We met up at 9 am.

It was clear and cold and we were all bundled up.
In warmer weather there are a lot of people sitting around these tables.

The round roofed building is the railroad terminal.

I should have taken a photo of the gentleman running this little hotdog stand.
He was a very friendly and his face had a lot of character.

There were several play areas for children

of all ages.

Someone neglected to pick up their breakfast and after tools when they left.
There are a lot of homeless people in this area.
The park has 24 hours surveillance (video and audio)
and 24 hour security patrols. 
All around it was a fun day.

Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #109: Garbage Day

Posted on 6:38 PM by jr cline | 3 comments

I took these photos for Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #109: Garbage Day

There are a lot of garbage cans in my life.  
These first two are from work.  
I have no idea when garbage day is there.  
Someone empties the cans every day though.

These next cans are from my house.  
There are six inside the house and a couple more outside.
All the inside trash eventually ends up in this can.
Garbage day at the house is on Thursday.

Here is my can patiently waiting.
Now it is a happy can,
lid thrown open in a wide grin.
OK, maybe it isn't grinning.
But I am, a month's garbage gone.

All but the first were taken using the Hipstamatic app Salvador lens.

I've had a great time playing with the Hipstamatic app Salvador lens. 
I thought I'd share some of the pictures I've taken in the last week.

Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #107: Gateways

Posted on 5:52 PM by jr cline | 1 comments

OK, so I got a little carried away with the gate challenge.
These are gates in and around the town where I work and live.
I drive by most of these at least once a week.

This next one belongs to Alabama Football fans.  See the red elephants?

This is the stadium gate at the local high school football stadium.

A gate at one of the rides in Desoto Caverns Family Fun Park.
 This is Becky's Tunnel.  It is the entrance into the cave at Desoto Caverns.
