I live on the very western edge of the Central time zone, where a December 21 sunset is at 5:44 pm. I failed to account for Nashville’s location – in the very eastern edge of the same time zone – and was therefore surprised at the 4:36 sundown. It cut into my first afternoon of photographing the city. But it also let me see this cemetery sunset. So, really, it all worked out.
I listened through the cemetery trees
Hello, and welcome to Random Music Reference Day. We here at One Day | One Image are the first ones to acknowledge that our brain works in a weird way and that random music lyrics will often attach themselves to certain images. Sometimes the lyrics-photo connection may make sense to, well, normal people. Other times, the link is obscure, at best. But the brain wants what the brain wants – I have no control over it.
And so, here we go, with listening through the cemetery trees, a line from “One Headlight” by the Wallflowers.
I sort of hate to even think about the circumstances that would result in a wig, tangled up in leaves, left at the edge of a street. It can’t have been good, right?
This was the first street-wig I’d ever noticed, but a few days later and only three miles away I saw ANOTHER one. I have some questions…
Quite a few opportunities
Ray of Hope: for sale
This is a true story: I saw this church building (which is for sale) within the first hour I was in Nashville, but didn’t stop to photograph it. And the reason I saw it is that we’d just eaten lunch at a taco place around the corner. The tacos were good.
And so the next day, we decided to go back to the taco place, which actually violates a Major Rule of travel – do not repeat-eat at restaurants. That’s how good the place was.
And, because we went back, I was able to get a photo of these windows after all.
Like many things in life, I owe this to tacos.
