I apologize if my title put the Beach Boy’s song “I Get Around” in your head, but I felt it was appropriate for this post. The older you are, the more of an issue this might be. This is my third blog post from a roll of Kodak TRI-X 400 shot with my Olympus OM1 on the streets of downtown Nashville, Tennessee. If you’ve read my last two posts, you know that I have been grouping shots together based on what they have in common. This post is about getting around town. What’s your favorite mode of transportation in Nashville or any big city for that matter? Is it walking or riding? Do you prefer motorized power or do you want to be self-propelled? Do you like to drive or do you like to be chauffeured? Would a horse driven carriage suit you? Below are a few images highlighting people getting around Music City.
My usual mode of transportation through Nashville is driving and walking. I have never taken a horse driven carriage ride nor a tour bus ride. You will never catch me drinking and driving on the Pedal Tavern or rolling down the street on a Segway, but I just might take a tour bus ride for the fun of it. The tour bus pictured in this post reminded me of the double-decker buses my wife and I rode around on in New York City many moons ago.
The only downside to getting around Nashville is the traffic. Depending on the time of day, even pedestrian traffic can be a nuisance. Finding a place to park can be an adventure within itself. Nonetheless, it’s a fun atmosphere regardless of your mode of transportation, just don’t be in a hurry. Speaking of not being in a hurry, my next post will be a short one about waiting in line at a very popular eatery and entertainment venue. Thanks for reading!
