Today’s Photo: Lenny’s Sub Shop
When I am out taking photos, I have a tendency to forget to eat. It’s not that I’m not hungry, it’s that there are too many other important things going on and I don’t have time. One evening walking around the Market Square and Downtown in Knoxville, we decided to make a quick stop at this little hole in the wall sandwich shop. I am bad about trying to find these types of shops. Sometimes they are good and sometimes they are bad. This one happened to be great. I recommend it to anyone in the Knoxville area.
Today’s Photo: The Railroad Bridge
This is probably my favorite photo from my stay in Knoxville last fall. This was from my second adventure into downtown and my goal was to make it to the Sunsphere and the Worlds Fair Park. This is the railroad bridge that runs through the park and over Cumberland Avenue.
Today’s Photo: The Haunted Hospital
Among my many adventures in Knoxville, there were several walks along the Tennessee River. One of those happened to be well after dark and to retrieve the car for me to go pick up my fellow explorers. Unfortunately, it took me a few minutes more to make it to them than it could have. I made a stop at Volunteer Landing to get a few shots of the Baptist Hospital that overlooks the river. The hospital is no longer in use and reminds me of the set from a horror film. Not that they scare me, but it was good to have several hundred feet of water to get some good reflections.
Today’s Photo: Entrance to Thompson-Boling Arena
I stopped for a quick shot while we were passing through the front entrance area to the Thompson-Boling arena on the campus of the University of Tennessee. I had just taken some shots of fireworks that I believe were the send off for the Vols to go play Alabama last year and we were walking to Neyland Stadium. Having never been inside the Thompson-Boling arena, I can only imagine what was in the space hovering above my head. Thankfully, it did not fall on me.
Today’s Photo: Busy Knoxville
I was working my way around Neyland Stadium one evening and made my way to the top of one of the parking garages. The stadium was completely lit, but there was not a football game. I never found out why, but I did get this shot of Neyland Drive along the river.
Today’s Photo: Art Under the Sunsphere
One evening in Knoxville, I went exploring and had some company. We drove around for a little while before we found a parking garage beside Market Square and settled on starting there. As soon as we got out of the car and began walking, I found this shot. Initially, I was trying to get the sunset with the Sunsphere. After a few minutes the sunset colors began to fade and I was left with this captivating scene. I was explaining HDR and good situations to use it. This was perfect with the bright interior of the building and the comparatively dark streets.
Today’s Photo: Freedom is not Free
I found this monument in the Tennessee Veterans Cemetery in Knoxville. It was among several others, but drew my eye more. I was impressed by its simplicity and yet profound message. Thank you to all those that have served and to those that paid for this freedom.
