Weekly Photo Challenge-Spring

Slide1

For Nashville, spring means out of town visitors.  Downtown is glad to see the weather bring in lots of visitors after the long cold winter.  People come on foot, by carriage, on bicycle and by car to the Strip on Lower Broadway and is Nashville ever happy to see them.  Locals also come out in the beautiful weather to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Strip.  Spring brings life back to the Strip.

Weekend Inspiration-Tricks from a Conceptual Photographer

A photographer shares how a conceptual image is made.  I love knowing how an image is developed.  It makes it all the more intriguing knowing all the steps the photographer went through to get to the final image.
