Project 365: February
One of the perks of my new job is that it requires me to travel around one of Tennessee’s favorite tourism destinations and experience it the way a visitor does. This obviously helps me tell the story of Franklin, Tenn., better but it also gives me the opportunity to snap a a picture in some truly beautiful locations.
February was an incredibly busy month for my camera and me. Between field trips around Franklin for my day job, and sideline sitting in the heart of basketball season I did A LOT of shooting this month. I made a conscious effort to not just rely on my game shots for my daily images, but some where just too fun not to include. For this guy that usually shoots sports, and more sports, I can tell my eye for non-sports shots is beginning to expand already.
Favorite Shot this month: Just down from my new office on Franklin, Tenn.’s historic Main Street, we had some new neighbors move in. It just so happened that it was as new project from the iconic candy company Olive & Sinclair, called Seersucker Candy Company. It is an artisan candy and coffee shop, where they make candies that look like you’d find in a magazine right in front of you. The display looked like these were fake “for display only” candies, but I can attest that they are very real, and very very good!
Something new this month: I have had the privilege to shoot a lot of exciting sporting events, but one thing I had never experienced at a game was a court storming. Well that changed when Vanderbilt knocked off No. 14 Kentucky at Memorial Gym. Once the Commodores knocked off the Wildcats, the student section poured on to the floor and all of a sudden I found myself surrounded by hundreds of Vandy students…. and Buddy The Elf.
