Nashville Tn is known as music city but it is also a city of culture and history, great food, pro sports, natural beauty and pure Southern charm. Nashville is a mix of the old and new.
I live in a small town 30 minutes east of Nashville but for 20 years I lived in Nashville. When I lived there I didn’t take many photos of the city, I have been downtown many times, usually just going to an event, but this past weekend I took my camera and went to downtown Nashville and acted like a tourist. I walked around and took lots of photos. I had a great evening and it is very surprising how many things you don’t really notice until you walk around actually looking at things. Nashville is full of great old architecture right next to modern buildings and the old next to the new is a very interesting mix. Most of the time I take photos of children and landscapes so it is a nice change to be able to take photos of architecture.
Here are a few of the many I took that evening.
Nashville is a great place to visit, there are so many things to do and lots to photograph.
You don’t have to travel far to learn how to take great travel photos. You can get started in your own town, or you might have the perfect location near you. Travel photography is about telling a story of an area’s landscape, architecture, people, cultures, customs and history. No matter where you are there are buildings or landmarks that identify it. There are many things even in a small town that you can photograph, so get your camera, put on your walking shoes and be a tourist, without even packing a suitcase, you may be surprised at what you see.
