At the end of January, I flew to Knoxville for a much anticipated wedding photography workshop with Bryan Allen. This would mark both my second workshop with Bryan and second trip to Knoxville, and I purposely gave myself an extra day to catch up with a local friend I had met at the first workshop, as well as to give myself an opportunity to further explore this small city on foot. The weather was cool but clear when I set out in the afternoon at the mercy of whichever direction my feet decided to take me, my trusty camera in-hand. One of my first stops after a reunion lunch and some shopping was Coffee and Chocolate, a cute little coffee shop just off Market Square where I was instantly taken by the last remaining Bacon Chocolate Chip cookie and which I enjoyed with a perfect, not-too-sweet, hot chocolate in the park across the street. From there, I wandered around the exterior of the courthouse (stunning!) and along the Tennessee River before meandering back to the Old City district, just a stone’s throw from my hotel. As the sun dipped below the horizon, I entered The Crown and Goose and nibbled on their delicious Ploughman’s Lunch (yes, for dinner!) while sipping on a lovely Cabernet Sauvignon, and completed a New York Times crossword (it was a monday). I absolutely love the cool vibe of Knoxville and it’s southern charm, and know I’ll return again…. if only as an excuse to attend another workshop or two!

You’re becoming a great bokeh master.
I also realy love the last one of the series.
By the way…. i realy don’t know what I’m doing here!
I don’t meet the talent of the bloggers here. (but I so like to)
Thank you Francois!! I rarely use a DOF greater than 2.8… hence the bokeh!! And you are a wonderful landscape photographer!! I especially love your winter shots! :)
It’s a great collage. You using Lightroom or something else?
Thanks Matt!! I just started using Fundy’s Blog Collage and really love it!
Hmmm, I’ll have to give it a gander. It looks great on your post.

What does a wedding photographer get up to in her spare time?
She takes wonderful, earthy photos of her location.
Gorgeous shots from Jennifer Hardt, Sweethardt Photography
Thank you so much for your kind comments and the reblog, Sarah! :)
You’re so welcome. I only wish your lovely phtoomontage had come through to my reblog too!
Ah well. Hopefully my post will attract you a few extra visitors anyway. :D
I appreciate the efforts, nonetheless! Likely something to do with the fact that I post the images as a collage rather than as individual rows?? Hmmmmm….
