i was in Nashville a couple weeks ago to see VNV Nation (for the 4th time,) and then recover from finals. i met Rural King for lunch friday, and he gave me a downtown tour, then i took some pics.



i stayed over on the West End, where the concert was, in Elliston Place



great show, although Ronan, the singer, got heatsick towards the end, so sadly there was no encore. but the best songs were on the main set, so it was o.k. great venue who didn't have a stick up their ass on cameras; wish i would've known cameras were cool, but i was stuck with the phone cam on the front row.



some more pics of Elliston Place























some assorted West End pics from my drive in















how hideous...







an SUV ruined the shot of the best part of this mural...



and now downtown, where i met Rural King

library parking deck











cool city murals inside the library





view from the entry





















































after Rural King had to go back to work, i went to see the Tennessee Military Museum at War Memorial Plaza (across the street from the Capitol, and the fabulous Snodgrass Tower...)







very good museum; i was especially impressed with the WWI section, which was a lot bigger than i expected

shot i thought the forum'd enjoy from a collage in the WWI section



across the street



beautiful plaza ;) more angry grasshoppers and dragonflies on it than people



West End pano



capitol











now to Broadway, the tourist trap part...this is the city of country music



















then i went west because i saw some old spirey-buildings





























parting shots





bonus pano

Yeah Nashville!!! Very cool city, in a very cool state! Has to be one of the most underrated and underrepresented cities in the US on these forums. Great pictures.

Very Nice shots!

Over the next couple of years, the skyline is going to radically change, and there will be a lot more opportunities to capture great architecture on film. The West End and Belle Meade areas are also growing their skylines. West End is a secondary skyline, and Belle Meade is our third skyline if you will.

In the past 5 years, Nashville has built almost 20 buildings over 10 stories not represented in these shots. It will be great to see them in future threads.
