Knoxville's Old City

These are some scans from the Old City, near downtown Knoxville, and Old Gray Cemetery. I was pretty pleased with these scans, I'm starting to come to grips with how to use the scanner more efficiently.

Riverfront Park

This isn't one of the pictures from the same roll as the ones below, but this is the best place that it seemed to fit in. This is a sunset shot from a park just off of Northshore as you leave Knoxville headed toward Farragut. It's one of my favorites.

Portal

A round window from the side of one of the bars along the Old City strip. Another one of my favorites. Simple geometry and some texture.

Krutch Park

I was surprised that this one turned out. It was getting dark, and the surrounding tall buildings really cut the sunlight down. The park was closed that day, so I stuck my camera through the bars on the gate and used the gate to hold my hand steady for the 1/30th exposure time. All the white dots are petals from the surrounding trees that have bloomed.

City Street

A shot of the Old City. I liked the tecture and imagery in this one.

Reflections

This is another of my favorites. The street is being reflected against the glass of the window. Again, I'm surprised that it turned out so well. The reflection didn't look that crisp when I was looking at it through the viewer.

Storefront

I liked the composure, but it was a little overexposed for what I was shooting for. (No pun intended...)

Patrick Sullivan's

I have tried to get a good shot of this building, and I haven't found what I'm looking for yet. But so far this is the best I have managed.

City Street 2

This is another good one. Most pictures of city streets feel wrong. I couldn't put my finger on it until a friend noticed that everything is designed to fit cars, not people. The perspective seems wrong to me, for what I'm aiming for. But this one seems to capture the feeling that I'm after.

Statue

The old headstones are the best. They just knew how to carve stuff in those days, I suppose.

Weeping Woman

A downtrodden woman stands forever morning the fact that she's covered in litchen and pigeon poo...

Angel Of Mercy

This stone angel stands before the cross, beconing to anyone who will hear her plea, as the sunlight streams in from behind her. (This is another shot that I never thought would come out right.)

Courtney

My photography buddy for this outing. She'd probably be ticked if she knew her picture was up here, but I think that it's an awesome portrait.
