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.
I've spent the past couple of days shooting the International Blues Challenge on Beale Street and what a pleasure its been. If you have never gone before (like me) the $10 for the wristband is so worth it. I feel like a bad Memphian for not having gone all these years. As always here are some of my favorite photos and acts from the past few days.
Summer Avenue is full of treasures. Imperial Lanes is (for now) one of those. When I heard that it was to be demolished and turned into an LA Fitness I grabbed my camera and went out to get some shots.
The latest awesome addition to Memphis (there have been so many recently) is the Big River Crossing is finally open. I rode my bike across it last week but wanted to spend a little more time taking photos so Megan, Murray and myself took a walk across. Here are some of my favorite photos from that walk.
Was in St. Louis last week for work. On my morning ride the fog rolled in and I was lucky to get this shot of some people going out in the boat. A few seconds later they were gone. Full resolution version of this is here.
