Welcome To My State

I think many people who have never visited Tennessee view it as a rustic step back in time, home to mostly hillbillies playing banjos while sitting on the front porch of a log cabin.  Or, perhaps, someone crooning country music and lamenting their dog running off with their wife or their wife running off with their pickup truck or something.  While we do have some rustic areas, and we certainly have a lot of country music, Tennessee is much more.  From the mountains of east Tennessee to the Mississippi River deltas of west Tennessee our topography is as varied as our people.  If you have never visited Tennessee then how you envision us is probably wrong.

I travel around the state a lot, mostly on my motorcycle.  I always take a few photographs and have decided to make a compilation of them.  Take a look around.  This is Tennessee as I see it through my camera, and I’ve barely scratched the surface.  The collection is always growing.  As I take them I’ll add more photographs to places already listed and as I visit them I’ll add more places.  Tennessee has a lot to see and I still have a lot to visit so there will be more as time goes by.

Make yourself at home.  There’s nothing to buy because I’m not selling anything.  There’s no “Donation” button because I don’t want your money.  There are no advertisements because I still believe in advertisement-free web sites.  I didn’t write the core WordPress software or the theme that I use but to the best of my knowledge there are no JavaScript applets or anything else trying to track where you go or what you do.  I don’t want your personal information or email address or anything else, I’m just glad that you stopped by for a few minutes and hope you enjoy your stay.

You can start your photo tour of my site by clicking the “Galleries” button on the menu above.  Clicking “Galleries” will display a page listing all of the individual pages on this site.  You can return to this page at any time by clicking “Home” on the main menu above.

Keep in mind that this site is not about my skills as a photographer it is about Tennessee.  Some of the photographs date back 7 or 8 years and are not nearly as good as the more recent shots.  I have better equipment now and I like to feel that I have improved as a photographer over time.  I haven’t weeded out the poor shots if I felt they showed an area of the state that I wanted to show so you’ll have to take the good with the bad though.

I hope you enjoy your tour of my state.  Thanks for stopping by!
