DICKSON TENNESSEE – You read that correctly. We made a flash trip down here on some personal business. Images taken with my Leica Monochrom. I’m getting good use out of my relatively new Leica 90mm macro lens.
Day 2,948 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life,
NEAR NASHVILLE TENNESSEE – We woke up after a monumental night’s sleep to a lovely, soft, late spring day. I spent an hour in the morning shooting around Gary and Diana’s house before we took off looking for cowboy boots and barbecue. This was with my Sony Nex-7 and 50mm Leica Summilux lens.
So after driving a while we found a joint (actually a dive) that advertised barbecue. Here’s their sign. This struck me as pretty promising and not bad for an April Fools day (of course the joke is on the pig).
Inside it was clear the the ole boys who populate this place are drinkers (quiet and deliberate), not foodies. The barbecue was very disappointing – it completely failed to live up to the low-down vibe. You just can’t trust appearances any more.
Later in the evening I experimented with photo booth (an app) on my iPad and with some of Gary’s local whiskies. This is how my head felt.
NASHVILLE TENNESSEE – We spent the weekend here with our friends Gary and Diana Fisketjon, who divide their lives between here and Manhattan. Not a bad life. Their house here was built from logs and limestone block in 1820 or so, around the time of Daniel Boone’s death. My travel kit these days often consists of my Nex-7 and a small selection of Leica lenses – this was taken with the 24mm Summilux.
