I hope you all got to enjoy that great Autumn rain on Friday, the nice weather on Saturday and the first touch of winter on Sunday. It was a great weekend in the city. I read all day Friday, which included “The Letters of Sylvia Beech,” loaned to me by Flossie at Union Avenue Books (thanks Flossie, it will be back soon). I tried 31 Bistro Saturday with great friends Shaft and Deda and got in a little trick-or-treat action with Urban Toddler on Sunday. Pretty nice.

I considered doing something spooky for Halloween, but I’m  not much of a Halloweeny sort of guy so, instead, I’ll end the month as I have a number of times before with images from the city I truly liked, but just never found the blog they deserved. Rather than have them disappear into pixel land, I’ll throw them out for your pleasure.

So many things that I photograph are things that I stumble onto in the city. The unexpected sightings of wedding parties, a cool reflection on a building, college kids being, well, college kids, are the kinds of things that make life interesting downtown. When I lived in the suburbs and I went to the grocery store I expected to buy groceries and drive back into my garage. Now, when I buy groceries it involves a walk and I never know what interesting person or sight I might find. Life is too short for dull.

If you’d like to see more pictures like these, I have nearly a thousand at the Stuck Inside of Knoxville Facebook Page and I’d love you to go there and hit the “like” button as you look around. Tell your friends about it. I’ll be adding labels to pictures and tagging people (you might look for people you know – or yourself – and tag them for me!). Also, I’d love to have you as a friend at the Knoxville Urban Guy Facebook Page.
