    My wife and I just got back last night from a a long weekend in Nashville. We stayed at one of the hotels right around the corner from Broadway, and right across the river from Nissan Stadium (where the NFL Titans play). Very enjoyable trip.
    This is my first foray into trying to do anything other than phone snapshots while travelling. Just not a fan of lugging a lot of gear around while sightseeing. I knew we would be walking almost everywhere we went, so I had decided against the D7200/Sigma 17-70 that I use sometimes for walkaround stuff. Lighter and smaller was my main priority. After the research and decision-making process, which had way too much boring detail to go into here, I ended up taking a Oly EM-5ii (with grip, used mostly with the 12-40 PRO) and a Panasonic GX85 (used mostly with the Pana 20mm f/1.7 and the Oly 14-150ii).
    Any comment or suggestions are welcomed, but please bear in mind this is my first attempt at this type of thing with an m43 system.
    Also, if you have a go-to camera/lens/bag combo I would like to hear about it

    Thanks,
    Mark

    Being from Nashville I think you did very well at depicting the Nashville downtown. There are so many different icons represented in the downtown area it is hard to pick six or seven. You did a very excellant job. I Would like to see the Vietnam Memorial Bridge in Color

    Thanks, Santa. There is so much to do there (as I'm sure you can attest) that we ran out of time to see everything we wanted to see. We are already planning another trip next fall, and I am really looking forward to it.
    I will look to see if I have a decent shot of that bridge in color. We we out walking at sunrise that morning, and the overall lighting was not too great....overcast and grey, and the above picture didn't really do much for me until I changed it to B&W.

    Great Job! I often carry the EM5 with the 14-150 and the 17mm 1.8 on trips. It's a great combo and not too hard to carry every where. I carried my 40-150 Pro on a trip to Branson in September. I sure did miss the 14.150.:)
