Taking photos has always been a hobby. From slideshows in college to photos of our travels, there was usually a camera around.
After building websites, applications, and managing development projects and products, there was nothing tangible at the end for most involved. It was just money for time. The projects and sites would come and go; and get unceremoniously replaced by something slightly different within a few years. There is some irony in that statement, as this is the third or fourth iteration of this website; but a former web developer using SquareSpace should tell you something about long term industry trends. The Internet is no longer the realm of neckbeards. The internet is a testbed of platforms for influencers and other combinations of words that mean nothing.
With that soul inventory and moral compass calibration, the challenge of building a catalog of landscapes and landmarks in Middle Tennessee seemed more important. Snapshots and windows into a certain time and place. With the growth from both sides of the map, a seat in Pleasant View, TN is prime for documenting this growth.
With growth comes change. Change means progress to some people. Change is a dirty word to others. Either way, it is inevitable. So I may as well capture as much of now while I can.
