Picture of the Week – 6/13/19

Cahaba lilies near West Blocton – about an hour and a half from Montgomery. The flowers bloom once a year in Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina – a reminder of the rich biodiversity found in Alabama’s rivers. There’s a festival on the third Saturday in May each year, and it is a celebration of the incredible (and somewhat mysterious) beauty that lies in unexpected places. How does a clump of flowers bloom in the middle of a river? How could anyone miss such grandeur?

Katie Pollock is a photographer who tries to capture the startling beauty of the natural and human-made world in a way that also captures the imagination of her audience.
