I recently joined a wonderful group of women photographers, aptly called Femme Photogs. What a great way to expand where I shoot, learn from others and get inspiration. It's also a great way to get feedback and a way to bounce ideas off other talented people. We hope to have our first exhibit in the fall and have been looking for exhibit spaces in the Nashville area. We picked a theme — Tennessee Places, Faces and Spaces — to accommodate several areas of interest. We've kept the size to eight of us so as not to overwhelm any venue we might go to.
So far we have been on two outings. The first was to Lunchburg, a small historic town south of us famous for being the home of Jack Daniels. We found interesting things to shoot in town as well as stopping several times to and from our destination. And, of course, we had lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's, a not-to-miss spot if you are in the area. Once a boarding house, it now offers a family-style dining experience facilitated by a hostess in all the small dining rooms. The food was quintessential southern and delish. We left stuffed (but happy).
This was an old building found on our way home:
On Monday, March 26, we headed to Leipers Fork to shoot the Mule Train as it headed to Columbia for its Mule Days celebrations. We think of mules as ornery creatures but I can attest that on this day the various mules and horses were feeling pretty special and did their best to pose and show us their best side. After a late breakfast at Country Boy's (another not-to-miss eatery) we headed home. Can you tell that trying new places to eat might be another upside to this adventure?
Here are a couple of my new friends from Monday:
Quite a handsome pair.
I hope you'll check in once and a while and catch up on our latest adventure.
