Nashville Streets Part 1 (2 of 2)

with 2 Comments

As promised, here is the second post of the remaining pictures from my first roll processed by my new lab. These pictures were taken in downtown Nashville during the Hockey All-star week. Read Part 1 (1 of 2) to hear the story behind these pictures and read about my anxiety when I was forced to change to a new photo lab.

The guy and gal below didn’t want to be part of the picture. You can see that they are a little blurry as they picked up their pace when they saw me. My shutter speed was a bit too slow to freeze them in place.

The next shot is one of those captures that took a whole different meaning once I had a chance to review the frame. At first glance, this is just a normal conversation between two people, but if you take a close look at the gentleman with his back to the camera, you will notice the strap around his neck says “www.navyjobs.com”. Apparently he is recruiting from the streets and those are pamphlets he’s handing out. This location is not too far from the bus station. One could gather that this woman just go off the bus or she is on her way to the station. On a side note, she did not like me taking her picture. She demanded that I erase it from my camera. I did not stop to confront her. I just smiled and kept walking. That encounter is the first time I’ve had a negative reaction.

The smiling employee in the capture below told me that this picture will cost me $10. I told him to put it on my tab.

I apologize if my next title and capture put’s Pharrell Williams’ Happy song in your head.

If there is one team’s jersey that can out number the home team Nashville Predators, it’s the Edmonton Oilers. The couple below were very nice. I had a brief conversation with them.

  1. […] My next 5 blog posts make up Part 2 of my Nashville Street adventures shooting Kodak TRI-X 400. I decided to break up the roll of 36 exposures into categories with the first of the five posts featuring smiles. It’s great seeing people out having a good time. It’s hard not to have a good time when you are in the festive atmosphere of downtown Nashville. If you read my Part 1 series, you know that I shot this roll on the same day. You can read the two previous post here and here. […]
