Anyone who has been following this blog for some time knows that taking pictures is one of my life’s joys, but the parameters of my small-town survival-heavy life do not allow me many trips to new or exotic locations. I am not retired; I do not have the funds or the time to travel to faraway places. But I do see a lot of beauty in my local surroundings and I try to use my photography to help others see the same.

In my other blog, I talk about my project to document the beauty of all the small towns that surround me, but here I will just show you some of the beauty I have seen within 2 miles of where I live.

We went to the top of the Bass Pro Shops Pyramid to get a view of the Mississippi in Memphis.

On a recent trip to Nashville, I made sure I stopped at Antique Archeology, owned by the American Pickers. Although things were for sale, I felt like it was more of a tourist destination than a store. There were many “souvenirs” for sale: t-shirts, key chains, stickers, etc. But seeing this was exciting and nostalgic for me: the shirt and guitar of Rick Nielsen of Cheap Trick!

For Sale: Rock and Roll Memorabilia

How many times did I watch his dramatic moves, admire his quirky clothing and try to catch the guitar picks he would toss into the audience during their shows!

Rock and rolls shows were a big part of my younger years. Visit my other blog to read about some of the bands I followed in my 20s…what a great time for music in Boston!
