Day 1: SOOC (30 Day Photography Challenge)

Standard
30 Day Photography Challenge

Birmingham, AL (2009)

So I’ve been flicking around with Flickr. All of my photos are scattered around in various places, so I thought it would be a good idea to start a Flickr account so that I could have a repository of all of them.

I’m also trying to find a way to push my very limited envelope of photography knowledge and ran across a Flickr group for the “30 Day Photography Challenge” so I thought I’d give it a go. There was another one for 365, but an entire year’s worth of regimented photography seems a bit…daunting.

Today I decided to start by posting an old photo that I took in 2009 while traveling back and forth for a movie shoot in Birmingham, AL. I remember being intimidated by finding my way around the city (as small-town girls are often are) but after only a few trips I found that I could navigate with the best of ’em, getting to where I needed to go mostly by trial and intuition…and finding out that streets labeled “north” and “south” actually reference a section of the city, not necessarily the north or south end of the street.

I wish I could remember which building this was, but I recall being so proud of the unaltered image that came out of this building in particular. The sun was setting and there was a little bit of a haze in the sky, which gave some great color to an otherwise completely gray and imposing structure.
