Horse Trails -> Highways

"Having no sense of direction, my adjustment after my to Nashville has been quite the adventure. There are three major highways that circle the city (I24, I65, and I40), a beltway (440), and a road that circles the city and changes name when it changes direction. Though I was fairly confused, I eventually started to notice the beautiful lines created by the intersecting of the massive structures created by these highways and byways, and decided to re-enter the world of night photography. Many of the roads that are my vantage points are former horse trails, and learning that fact sparked my curiosity about the history of Nashville and the planning of the city. It is an ever-evolving project, and I look forward to each new discovery."
