    I'm told by folks from the Southeastern Photo Society who've been there if you ask nicely they will let you stay after closing time to shoot in the fading light. We shall see!

    Thanks for the education
    The attached shot is from Sloss (man, my scanner sucks) . Lots of cool shapes and textures there, lots of decay.

    As I told Gary off-post, I wouldn't let rain keep me away. In fact, it might be a plus.

    I hope to join ya'll there.

    As to food: there are a lot of great choices within 10-15 minutes of Sloss. I'm there frequently on business, and for me, B-ham is all about barbecue.

    Sorry I did not get back to you sooner... Had a little "run in" with the medicos at the hospital... OK now. Sloss furnace in naturally in an industrial area of town, but within 20 minutes is just about every kind of food place. If its barbeque you crave there are a number of locations of "Jim and Nicks". They are hard to top. I'm usually a brown bag kind of guy, but I'll meet you anywhere you like.

    Bill, what's your take in this, since you're the local guy? Think one of these places will be a good drop in for us out of towners to meet and do intros before the shoot? It would need to be a place where you could push a few tables together if necessary. Some places are all immoveable booths and make it hard for a group to sit and chat. Another helpful quality is to be easy to find coming off the freeway.

    The sloss location is just about down town Birmingham off 1st ave North. Most of the eating places 20 minutes are in the down town area too. Easy to get to and near the Sloss furnace, but maybe hard to find for first time out of towners. Maybe for those who have never been here before we might consider meeting at Sloss parking lot, then go in mass to an eatery and then return. Another option might be to meet at an interstate exit coming in to town that would be easy to find have lunch there then go into the Sloss area. Everyone coming here I think has to arrive I59, I20, or I65, so we could pick something easy to find on one of these Interstates and meet there.
    Doug in Huntsville is probably as familiar will Birmingham as I am and has been to Sloss before, so he may have ideas from his times before.

    Golden Rule BBQ in Irondale would be handy for folks coming in from Atlanta on I-20. It's right off the interstate. The exit for Sloss, 1st Ave. North, is just a couple of miles on down the road.

    Sounds like you have something there Doug. What do the rest of you folks planning on coming think of this plan?

    That's a great idea Doug! I'll sure try to be there.
