Rounding out our day of photoging at the centerpiece of Nashville's Centennial Park, Ben and I were plum near exhausted, but still needed to make this trip. Now home to one of Nashville's largest art museums, this replica of the Parthenon in Athens was built in 1897 honoring Nashville's Centennial.

The last time I was in Nashville, I was with my family driving to see my grandparents, who at the time, resided in Pensacola, Florida. I believe we only stayed at the Opryland Hotel for a night on our way south, but I do remember my mom being excited to stay there.

Monument of a Confederate soldier in Franklin, Tennessee. The statue was erected in 1899 by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, a national society of female lineal descendants of Confederate soldiers founded in 1894, to honor those who fought in the Battle of Franklin on November 30, 1864.

After we dropped my bags at Ben's place just outside of Nashville, we needed to decide where our 24-hour photo/food/fun adventure would begin. Being Brad Paisley's tour photographer, Ben was more than game to put up with my silly photography antics. Right around the corner from his humble abode sits a large plantation that Ben had really never explored called the Belle Meade Plantation. Hearing they had horses, history and wine, of course this looked like a fantastic starting point to me.

So this is Summer Jam. Good ol' Summer Jam. Lived in Jersey for a great 5 days. On the eve of the 5th day, Monday, I was done, went home, did laundry, repacked a bag and flew to Nashville at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday.

I find it strange that the sunsets around New Meadowlands Stadium are always so gorgeous. Though I've heard that the color of the sunsets are directly related to the number of the pollutants in the air... so, perhaps it does make sense.
