Rock n' Roll, Music City!

I spent the weekend in Nashville, Tennessee— city of neon lights, delicious southern food, and fantastic musicians. I had to snap a photo of these mounted police hanging out of an alley on Broadway Street, which is where the heart of the nightlife seems to be.

I also wandered through the old Union Station, which has been turned into a beautiful hotel but still has train tracks crisscrossing across the back lot area. The people at the bottom of this photo are completely dwarfed by the grandiosity of the architecture behind them.

When you're hungry and you're not in the mood for fried chicken, barbeque, grits, okra and sweet tea, why not stop at a tiny little hot dog stand, I Dream of Weenie? We had to go there for the name alone, but the hot dog was pretty great too.

A British two-fer...

Another Stranger from my short trip to London...this one from one of our favorite dinners. This is a Dim Sum restaurant in soho.

British humor...

OK...I should leave this one to Gaz to explain :) These Strangers were part of the comic relief in London's New Year's Day parade. It was in the low 40s (Fahrenheit) that these men were brave. Still...the crowd loved them.

Lady in Red

This brave woman and her companion faced the blustery winds of Ann Arbor... every time I look at the picture I remember how cold it was that day. I hope at her age I'm still out fighting those Northern winds.

beautiful beast

this fella came over the dunes towards us on a recent visit to a lighthouse. we all thought the way the horse's coat shone was wonderful, and the pattern was beautiful.
