Little Jimmy Dickens Outside Of The Ryman Auditorium
Little Jimmy Dickens picked up his name because of his short stature. He was only 4’11”, but he was a big country star. He was still performing into his 90’s which is something I think we would all like to do. He has his own dressing room at the Ryman which is something reserved for those who have meant a lot to the building. He was a name that I recognized, but didn’t know too much about until that trip to the Ryman in March.
Making Photos of Statues
For some reason I have always liked making photos of statues. They are right there posing for you, and they don’t get tired of you trying to find the right angle. I usually like to add some sort of context to these portraits. Here is was easy. The sign on the Ryman provided all of the context that I needed. This was one of the easiest photos that I made on my Nashville trip.
The Week In Photos
My time in Nashville was pretty amazing. When NCAA sites were being talked about this was the site that I was rooting for. There was a reason for that. I wanted to explore a bit more than I was able to the last time that I was down there. My week in photos from that time was pretty fun to put together as it was a fun week to be a photographer. You can see my favorite photos from a fun week here on my Exposure site.
