Is faded glory still glory?

Here’s another image from my spur-of-the-moment project to document the seedier side of the Graceland neighborhood. This empty shopping center is directly across the street from the mansion.

the opposite of the expected

Memphis. I went to Memphis. I didn’t have an intention of going to see Graceland, because I don’t care.

But the last day there, I thought that perhaps a drive past Graceland might yield something that wasn’t Elvis-driven fanciness. And I was richly rewarded by this flea market.

And, also, I had this John Hiatt song in my head all day. Because that’s the way my head functions.
