The theme for this week's challenge will be Hometown, suggested by Donna. Select a photo that best represents "Hometown" This could be something you love about where you live, either your hometown, home state, country....anything that shows your home. It is your interpretation of "Hometown" or "Home"
after several attempts....i just wasn't able to get out and shoot any new pix of my hometown, so i had to resort to my archives. these were taken in the fall of 2006. although i now live 50 miles east, i will always consider florence, alabama my home town. an important and historically rich part of our town is the university of north alabama...a beautiful campus and home of the ncaa division II football national championship lions (93, 94, and 95) and boast the only live lion mascots in the country living on campus, leo and una. pictured below is willingham hall.
there are beautiful victorian houses along the main street of our historical district, some of which have been converted into bed and breakfast inns.
florence is located in the nw corner of the state on the tennessee river. fishing, boating, skiing, sailing are favorite activities.
our beautiful downtown wilson park hosts many annual events. here are some renaisannce faire belly dancers.
and many shops and restaurants can be found along the tree lined streets of downtown.
