Amqui Station Farmers Market 10: The Depot

So this is the old train depot.  I’m not exactly sure of the entire story, but I think it was originally located in Hendersonvlle, and Johnny Cash would drive by it whenever he was returning to his home on Old Hickory Lake.  He watched it fall into disrepair and eventually acquired it, and he and June Carter ran it as a boutique and railroad memorabilia museum.  He donated the structure to nearby Madison, AT&T donated some land, and the structures were moved to this location in the middle of a park, where it now serves as a museum and community center. I think that’s the story.

Amqui Station Farmers Market 6: Squash

Not much more to say about this one.  This is the Instagram version, with, I think the “Lo-Fi” filter.  I rather like what that one does to the colors, highlights and shadows.

Amqui Station Farmers Market 5: Nancy VanReece

Nancy is a Madison resident and is active in the community; shewas instrumental in organizing the Farmers Market.  I was a tad slow getting the focus in the right square.  Sometimes autofocus can work against you.  Next time I’ll try to remember to just snap the collar back and use the manual focus with focus peaking.
20/20 hindsight. It’s an occupational curse for photographers…

Amqui Station Farmer’s Market 4: Mayor Dean Blows The Whistle

I rather like Nashville Mayor Karl Dean.  He’s the least politiciany politician I think I’ve met.  Except for Mary Mancini.  Actually, most politicians seem like normal people when you meet them in person.  Except John Edwards.  That guy just oozed sliminess.
I imagine being the Mayor of America’s 25th largest city is a 24/7 job… so here’s the mayor on a sunny spring Sunday afternoon, casually dressed for a change, pulling the chord on the railroad whistle to announce the opening of the Farmers Market.

Amqui Station Farmer’s Market

Last Sunday (June 1) I went out to Madison (aka “Northeast Nashville”) to help my friend Nancy Van Reece with some photo coverage of the inaugural Farmer’s Market at the Amqui Station – a vintage railroad depot that Johnny Cash once owned and donated to the city before he died. The depot has been turned into a museum an rec center in the middle of one of the area’s parks, and will host a farmer’s market every Sunday through the summer.
Unfortunately I was totally lax about getting people’s names. Have to work on that…

The Night Stair

Once there was a stairwell here, which the monks of the Melrose Abbey would descend every morning from their dormitory behind the doorway for their morning prayers.  Then they would return to the dormitory to get the rest of their night’s sleep.  No telling where those stones are now…in the wall of somebody’s stately home, perhaps…

The Night Stair 140530Since yesterday’s post was so well received, here’s another from the “Portals Of Stone” series – Melrose Abbey in @ScotBorders region. The monks lived in a dormitory behind the upper doorway, and descended the now extinct stairs at 2AM every day for morning prayers.
The GPS Coordinates are 55.5980° N, 2.7310° W since Instagram will only let me tag “nearby” locations, and I’m not there now…. <*sigh*> more at http://ift.tt/1koYz4J

Rosslyn In The Stars – The Instagram Version

So maybe I mentioned that I’m throwing a lot of my photos in a “frame” and posting them to Instagram, to see what sort of Legion of Followers I can find there.  Last week I posted this version of “Rosslyn In The Stars” – the Portals Of Stone of a sunrise/exterior photo of this 15th century chapel a few miles south of Edinburgh which was the location of the final scene in the book and movie “The DaVinci Code.”

#GoT Humor

I saw this on Instagram yesterday and had to share it with my network. I don’t think this is the real George R. R. Martin, but can’t say for sure. You have to be familiar with the last two seasons of the show to get the joke.

#Scotland: The Writers Museum / Edinburgh

We have one of those digital photo frames on the counter in our kitchen. It’s loaded with all the photos from our trip to Scotland in October, 2012.  Ann turned it on over the weekend, and I kept seeing this image.  It was shot through a window at The Writers Museum on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Scotland (which may be my favorite place in the world).  There is probably a name for this effect, with the circular lens in the middle of the pane and the geometric distortions all around it, but I can’t think of it at the moment.
