Knoxville - World's Fair City

The beautiful City of Knoxville,TN hosted the 1982 World's Fair. The theme was "Energy Turns The World". (Just a little ahead of its time.)
During its 180 day run it drew 11 million visitors making it one of the most popular fairs in U.S. history. The lovely World's Fair Park remains as a destination of locals and vistors alike.

Agree, always assumed Knoxville fairground is some run-down wasteland.

From these pics, the city looks very beautiful. Big surprise.

In Photoshop, create a background layer. Expand the canvas a small amount.
Then go to Layers > Styles and pick Drop Shadow. Flatten out your pic and that's it.
Create a custom action and the operation is only one mouse click.

Nice pictures, though it looks strangely deserted.
