Berry’s Loan, Nashville, TN. May 7, 2012.
It’s odd to see this sign not lit up. It’s been a fixture on 4th avenue north for more than 40 years. After 71 years in business, Berry’s is closing up shop. Its remaining inventory was auctioned off on Saturday night.
I don’t know what it is about that particular spot, but I’ve always found it to be particular photogenic. Nonetheless, I never felt like I got a particularly good photo of it. And, so, I’ve tried to get that Perfect Shot over, and over, and over. And over. Oh well. Quantity is a sufficient substitute for quality, right?
No word yet on who won the sign, which was auctioned off along with everything else on Saturday.
Carriage ride, downtown Nashville. March 12, 2012.
As much as I hate these things, they have their anachronistically photogenic charms.

A few years ago they introduced a bunch of hawks to downtown Nashville in an attempt to combat the pigeon problem. I don’t know if it worked, but it sure looked cool at times. No word on what they plan on doing about the starling problem.
