I have finished part one of my Photographic Tour of Nashville.

I have plans to go all around the county and take pictures of historic places, downtown buildings, city parks and places in between. I have also included other parks that are nearby that might make good day trips.

I am far from done as there are many places I have not been to yet with my camera, but I should have a chance to add to it over the coming months. to get to the new site, go here:

Some of the specific places include:
the Nashville skyline
Centennial Park
Love Circle
Marrowbone Lake
