Ernestine & Hazel's is an inspiration. There is a creative energy that buzzes around the place like no other in Memphis. It has history. It has character. It has the most delicious drunken food ever made, the Soul Burger. It's also authentic Memphis. If you have never been--especially if you are from out of town go. You will not be disappointed.
Tillman Street is one of the streets I take when I am commuting by bicycle. It's how I get to Broad Avenue (and then to Midtown or Downtown) after The Greenline ends. On this street is the Binghampton Community Life Center. The basketball courts there have recently got a new coat of mural paint thanks to the Memphis Grizzlies and artist Nosey42. I've been wanting to photograph these new murals for quite sometime. Since it was a gorgeous day to ride and I had my camera with me (and the now-essential fisheye lens) I stopped by and took some shots. You can find more of Nosey's work at his Instagram.
