Visiting Old Friends

Quite often, I like revisiting some of my favorite subjects. It may be on a whim or it may be a planned shoot. The subject matter is the same and it’s not the same. Different time of year, different time of day and different weather are all aspects that make the same subject different. Over the years, I’ve shot these locations with a variety of cameras including film cameras. I’ve used medium format, 135, four thirds, micro four thirds and my phone. I’ve shot in sunny weather as well as snow and rain. When you add a different camera, a different technique and different processing, you can get a variety of different looks from the same location. Visiting these locations is like visiting a loyal friend. You can always count on them being there rain or shine. With a short window to play around, I headed onto the Natchez Trace Parkway or “The Trace” as called by the locals.

Another cool aspect about these places is that they are popular spots for locals as well as outsiders. I’ve met people from all parts of the US at these locations as well as people from across the pond. A lot of these people are retired and spending their golden years traveling. If you find yourself traveling in the Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi region, it would be worthwhile to explore The Trace! Thanks for reading! Like and Follow me at Shuttering Thru Life.
