    I am sure many are like me and have places they just like to photograph. Places that may be easy to get to in the 'everydays' of life. They may not be outstanding destinations, but they make for a good afternoon to practice our photography. Or simply a place to relax and enjoy what is around us. Or maybe it's just a place that you would like to share with other photographers.

    I would like this thread be a somewhere to show those places.

    I probably have posted these in other threads, but here I will bring them together to describe a place.

    This is downtown Knoxville, Tennessee as seen through my E-M10 over the past 9 months.

    Knoxville may not be the most well-known destination, but it can be an interesting place to photograph. As is the case with most anywhere. That is why I would like to see other's "Places."

    I was hoping to see others recording of places. I think it is interesting to see someone's view through the lens and how they can define a place. Two photographers will most likely see a things in very different ways.

    I like the idea of showing others my personal view. Maybe it would help to bring others to enjoy something new, or just in a new way.

    I will have to see if I can put together another set of images.

    That's an excellent set of photos. Nice work! The B&W suits them well.

    Melton Hill Park is a small county park that is a fairly easy drive to get some shots. I like it because it tends to be empty, or nearly so, early in the morning. It is on a bend in the Clinch River, so it can have some fog. That can be good, or bad for taking photos.

    It's a place that can scratch my photography bug pretty easily.

    Here are some shots from the past year.
