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.
I may as well just go ahead and admit that I did spend a few minutes lurking while I waited for the silhouette-person on the other side of the door to move just a little bit, to get a better image. Previous versions of my photographic self wouldn’t have even made the photo because I would have considered it to be tainted by having a person in the frame.
People change. Even photographers!
The pyramid dominates the Memphis skyline, if you’re in the right part of town to see it. It’s a Very Big Deal to visit the thing, which houses a Bass Pro Shop and a hotel as well as a restaurant and viewing platforms up at the top. The mashup of an over-the-top outdoor store and the Big Cyprus Lodge INSIDE A DAMN PYRAMID made me a little dizzy. So I just photographed an empty parking lot on a side street and called it good.
