Considering that nothing I write today will be able to compete with the triumphant return of Birmingham’s Taylor Hicks home as he prepares for the semifinals of American Idol, I figured it only made sense that this week’s shots (and there are a few) should focus on one of the most sincere individuals I’ve seen in my time here. The following are shots from the parade held for Hicks this afternoon along the Birmingham Green (20th Street, North) downtown.

Taylor Hicks thanking those fans that came out in support as he arrived in front of Birmingham City Hall earlier this afternoon.
I have a few more that I will upload to my Flickr account later on this afternoon. We’ll see if we can’t get some more images later on today. Curtis Palmer is planning to take some images at Taylor’s Galleria performance and there’s always Art on the Rocks tonight!
