If you read Volume 1 of my Face to Face blog post, you might recall me talking about the two guys in the first picture of this post. Before taking a picture of Mary Beth, I had a nice conversation with John and Karl. John on the left, is from Alabama. His wife told him that he was going to get into more trouble if he stayed on the streets of Birmingham. She thought he would fair better if he came to Nashville, so she bought him a bus ticket. We all had a good laugh when I asked if it was a one way ticket. Karl is German. He came to Nashville in 1969. He has worked in numerous factories over the years. Now, he finds himself on the streets where he makes his hustle as a street musician. Karl plays the harmonica and loves playing the blues. I probably talked to John, Karl and Mary Beth for about 45 minutes. I had a fun time chatting with them. They are what I call ‘good people’.
While I was talking to a fellow street photographer named Perry Demeson, I grabbed the shot below. I had a nice conversation with Perry about photography. We talked a little about film and post processing techniques. Perry also dabbles in analog photography, too. Check out his Flickr Page. He has a lot very cool shots from downtown Nashville.
The remaining images will finish my Random Street Pics from this roll of film. I have one more street post from this roll that is a bit on the abstract side.
As always, thanks for reading! Stay tuned for my final street post from this roll of TRI-X.
