Memphis, Tennessee

On our way to the west, we spent a few days in Memphis where John’s brother James was living at that time. We went to Otherlands – John & James’ favorite place for breakfast in the mornings, walked around downtown looking for interesting signs and places that are Memphis-esque, spent the afternoons taking pictures by the river, and hung out at local pubs drinking beer and catching up with each other at nights.

The best memory of Memphis is watching and photographing the beautiful sunset by the river although I didn’t get any photographs from it that are extra-ordinary. Like everything else in life, it reminded once again journey matters more than the destination.

Blue Ridge Parkway

I spent almost about a month on the road in USA in the autumn last year. As I always do, I took so many random photos mostly to document my journey and some to add to my future portfolio assets.

Although I’ve been going through the photos from the trip for the past a couple months and uploaded quite a lot to my Flickr account, I still have a lot more to go through. I plan on finishing them by the end of the month and share the better ones with you whoever stumbled upon my blog that has rather been neglected for quite some time now.

I love my photos. Not because I think I’m a better photographer but because, like a lot of photographers I know of, I enjoy documenting my life through photos and looking at them helps me remember things better. When I look at the photos I took in the past, it’s very easy for me to remember the details of the moments such as how I felt when I was pressing the shutter, whether I was in a good mood or a bad one, what the air smelled like, how warm the sunlight was, etc. I was going through the photos from the trip and I realized once again how wonderful the trip was although it was rather challenging at times for me being more of a city girl than a camper.

I’m going to slowly upload the better photos from the trip starting from today and I guess it makes the most sense if I do it in the chronological order. So, here we are. I’m starting with some photos of Blue Ridge Parkway where we passed through on our way to Memphis. The colours of the mountains were so beautiful but the grey day with the rain weren’t too kind for the photos.
