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.
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…
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.
