Flashback Friday: Revisiting Birmingham

Back in November I went to a wedding in Tennessee, and I used that as an excuse to go visit Alabama afterwards. I lived in Birmingham for a year so it's nice to go and visit friends and some of the old stomping grounds. I took some time on Morris Ave to sketch while I was there. This particular street is a nice throw back, it is below most of the other streets and is criss-crossed by a number of overpasses above. The buildings are all older than average for the city, and the street itself is paved in gray bricks. Unsurprisingly, it is often used for photo shoots, walking fow the road I passed what appeared to be an engagement shoot and someone taking their senior portrait. It was late afternoon and the light was beautiful, great for both photography and sketching!
