This week is going too fast. Slow down, take a deep breath, and relax. I can’t because I am around the people I have admired for so many years and there is so much I want to learn from them. I just want to slow down time and savor every word and action.
The images I have for you today are from our shoot at the river Monday evening. There is a pedestrian bridge across the river and it usually fills up quickly with locals and tourist photographers. We got there around 8:00 p.m. and got set up. It was fun watching the light fade and the city lights come on. Right on schedule the River Cruise Boat made its appearance and we pressed our shutter buttons with firm resolve trying to capture the perfect image.
My image didn’t win the critique contest but I’m reasonably happy with the results. Actually I like the image above of the tug boat better than the one we were supposed to photograph, which is the first image. 🙂

I notice this large thunder head building up over the Tennessee Tightens’ Stadium. I thought if I could capture a bolt of lightning it might make a great photo. It was too light outside to make a timed exposure and I didn’t have a neutral density filter so I just anticipated the strike, used continuous shutter release and got very lucky with this shot. I’m very please. 🙂
This trip (so far) has been like a dream come true. 🙂
I sat at the bar last night (at the hotel bistro) with Joe McNally. He was working on his lap top answering emails and making phone calls. We exchanged a few words but I didn’t want to intrude on his personal life so I just ate my food and listened and visited with the other people in the Bistro. But it was very cool sharing the time with him.
That’s it for today. We get to do portrait photography on Ricky Skaggs today at Dury’s Camera Store. Should be a lot of fun.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day. Stay cool and be careful.
I’m glad to see that you have a great time Dave. Can’t wait to hear all your stories about this workshop and trip to Nashville!
Enjoy the remaining time there.
Thank you my Friend. It is a one in a life time experience. Standing beside Joe McNally watching him make adjustments on his camera and telling us why was wonderful. I won’t do it again but it was well worth the time.
