Sightseeing in Birmingham, Santa Monica, and Austin

I’ve been doing a lot of sightseeing lately.  I took this photo at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens when I traveled there early last week.
I took the second photo in Santa Monica, California on a photography field trip later that same week.

I’m in Austin Texas this week visiting our son and daughter-in-law. These beautiful sun flowers were waiting for me when I arrived. This has certainly been a time of travel for me and I’m loving it.
