I Give You.. The Corn-Mobile

The Corn-Mobile
Photo-A-Day 2.0 #00176

On our last full day of vacation we headed from Kentucky back to Nashville. There were a few places that we really wanted to visit and places that Tara wanted to show us. We drove directly to her favorite place to go in Nashville, Burger Up. I found myself gravitating towards the same sort of things on this trip. If there was pimento cheese on anything on the menu I was getting that. And if there was Mexican Street Corn I couldn’t pass it up. I got a pimento cheese burger and we split some friend pickles which were really good.

After lunch we wandered the street to see the different shops. Well, Allison, Eva and Tara went shopping and I took Andrew to a park to play. That was after we had found a few street murals and we stopped to get some photos. These couple murals were across from Burger Up.

When we went over to this mural there was a line and the people there took our photo after we had taken theirs.

Music not War

We didn’t play tourist that much today. We didn’t go to any of the music places around, I hadn’t been to Nashville in years and the city seemed so much bigger now. We did go downtown because there was one thing that Allison really wanted to see and those were the giant wings. We all had our photo taken at the wings. It is a huge mural and there is a line and spots where you stand to take the photos. Here are our photos:

We headed to our hotel where we would stay the night to get up tomorrow for the flight back home. We went to the pool to get cooled off and relax. Then we went to a Mexican restaurant for tacos and more. And they had Mexican Street Corn.

We were all quite tired and so there was no continuation of the Northopoly game. We’ll have to wait until the Summer on the Cape for that.

Heading to Digital Days Boston

Later this morning I’m heading up to Boston to attend Digital Days, a digital photography seminar. I ran a contest this past month to give away 6 2-Day passes to Digital Days in Palm Springs, Boston, San Francisco, New York, Nashville and Atlanta. We had many great submissions and one of the winners, Paul Richardson, sent me photos that he took at the Palm Springs Digital Days event as well as a statement about the great time he had there.

I’ve just spent one of the best weekends of my life getting to know more about photography, both the technical aspects and creativity. Digital Days is such a wonderful workshop for camera hacks like me. I met some nice people and the event staff was really great. The classroom work was extremely informative and the model shoot was so fun. I highly recommend attending the event if it comes to a town near you. So, thanks to BenSpark.com for the opportunity to attend.

Here are some of Paul’s shots from the live model shoot on day two.

I think that Paul did some amazing work. I hope that mine are just as good. Can’t wait to see what this event is all about. So much to learn.
