In my never-ending quest for the perfect film camera I recently came across the Ricoh GR II. Since it has the same focal length (28mm) as one of my Fuji prime lenses I decided to sell that lens and bought a used Ricoh GR II. I’ve been very impressed with this camera and its size & weight (it fits in your pocket) fill the need of a camera I can take with me everywhere.

Here are a few shots I took while walking around downtown Memphis. So far so good!

 

Had the privilege to photograph the annual Blues Music Awards this year. Of all the photos I took these of Cedric Burnside are easily my favorite.

Regardless of how you feel about the Memphis vs. Nashville debate you can agree that they both look great from the air. Speaking of that debate, I’m over it. I love Memphis of course but always have fun exploring and doing new things in Nashville.

As a Memphian its hard to not go a day without thinking about Martin Luther King and the Civil Rights Movement. Not only destroyed a great man but a great city as well. And Memphis is still trying to recover from that moment 49 years ago today.

Had some free time on Monday so I took advantage of the nice weather and headed down there. Originally I had planned on just going down on Cleveland and just taking a few photos of some new murals and maybe the outside of the Crosstown Concourse. As I was walking by the Concourse I decided to poke my head in the lobby. Man was I BLOWN AWAY. I underestimated the enormity of the Crosstown project by a mile. Inside it looked like some kind of futuristic city and one of the largest construction projects I have ever seen.

Photos from walking around Crosstown Arts and the Concourse itself are below. FYI I usually just post a paragraph of words here then show all the photos. This time I’ve written a few things about some of the photos so make sure to scroll down so you don’t miss anything.
