The Downtown Veterans Day Parade is always a fun and moving event to see. I used to march in it every year when I was in high school (band nerd), but the poignance of the event has only dawned on me as an adult. Vets of all ages watch and march in this parade, and the celebration is a nice token of appreciation for their sacrifices.
For more from the parade, check out the slideshow here.

Josh usually shoots gorgeous weddings using mostly film (which makes me an instant fan), but we hope he contributes more Memphis street photography soon. Check out his website here.

What's more fun than getting muddy? Cleaning up in water sprayed from a fire truck! luvmud's addition of the kids' race this year was a triumphant success. They also gained a great volunteer photographer this year too - Ziggy Mack. Thanks Ziggy for this set. I'm sure you'll see more luvmud photos on here soon.

Art, music, and revelry again for the September Trolley Tour. This time, several of the contributors to this blog and other area photogs met up for some fun. Oddly, I was the only photographer there who actually brought a camera along, so you folks are stuck with a few of my photos of the evening.

UrbanArch Park(ing) art installation mentioned in the previous post, taken with a Lomo Fisheye camera. Notice the seams to the graffiti wall designed as a giant puzzle so it could be disassembled for the art auction happening this week. Bid on your favorite puzzle piece here. All proceeds go to the UrbanArt Commission.

Today in downtown Memphis near Peabody and Main, Memphis is hosting it's first Park(ing) Day a worldwide event where various groups take a parking spot or two and turn them into mini parks. Until 5pm, you'll find graffiti artists (UrbanArch); a wall to paint your own art, listen to live music, and play table tennis (Habitat for Hope/LuvMud); an art exhibit (Memphis Regional Design Center); and even a giant see-saw called the "teeter tire" (brg3s). Check them out. I'll be lounging with the Habitat for Hope group this afternoon. See you there.
