Photography is more than a hobby for Larry O. Gay. It’s a passion; the way he celebrates life. He works in a Birmingham, Alabama steel mill but in his spare time he hits the streets in search of interesting images. His lens captures the beauty in ordinary things that people pass by every day without noticing.
A National Historic Landmark, Gaineswood was built by Nathan Bryan Whitfield. A cotton planter and Renaissance man of his time, Whitfield moved from North Carolina to Marengo County in 1834. The house and grounds are currently operated by the Alabama Historical Commission as a historic house museum.
