A Good Run

Beautiful view of Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain just after sunset.

It's been almost two years since I started this blog. It was a wonderful excuse to help me get out and become familiar in my new surroundings. In the meantime I've returned to teaching full-time and just can't seem to keep up with my photography. So, at least for now, I'm putting this blog to rest. Thanks for all your visits and nice comments.


Time For a Break

Sitting at Rembrandt's Coffee Shop in the Bluff View Art District is a nice way to slow down and take a breather.


The Ocean Journey

The newer part of the Tennessee Aquarium is the Ocean Journey. It has the same design as the original aquarium building, which showcases freshwater life.



Probably the most recognizable structure on Chattanooga's skyline is the Tennessee Aquarium. Although I'm a fan of old architecture, I love the triangular rainforest on top of this building and the haphazard bridges and waterways surrounding it all.


More Construction

This is an update on the building I first shared here. You can see that this is going to be a quite modern building.


Wet Reflection

The medallions along The Passage represent various Native American themes.


Going For a Swim

This game of stick ball has partially been moved underwater, due to the flooding. Compare it to this earlier post.


A Fast Current

Although it is hard to catch in a picture, the current is visible in these surface circles of the river.


Flood at Ross's Landing

This summer has been more hectic than I thought and I've had a hard time getting out to take Chattanooga photos. Recently we've had tons of rain (over 6 inches this weekend). I'm pre-posting some of the flood pictures this week while I'm out of town. I won't be able to post any comments for a few days since I'll have limited internet access.
Compare the top shot of Ross's Landing to this one taken last November to see how high the water has risen. The eddies in the top shot are the pillars that are normally lining the riverfront.
