Random Shots: I don’t want to miss a thing…

Interior of Downtown Presbyterian Church. acnatta/FlickrEven though that’s essentially impossible, it’s still nice to hope for. Last weekend I was able to head up to Tennessee for BarCamp Nashville as well as the National Preservation Conference. I ended up writing two posts for Urban Conversations about the ability to attend the conference virtually versus doing it in person and the benefits of the physical interaction (even though the virtual is a lot of fun and can lead to some great conversations in their own right).

That said, I’m most grateful for the chance to take this photo during my trip. Yes, there were video streams of sessions taking place in the Downtown Presbyterian Church, but the ability to see its sanctuary up close and personal was something that I really appreciated. Not to mention the other photos and experiences I was able to take away from my first real trip to Nashville (which is inspiring yet another Urban Conversations post this week).

Ironically, today there was a post written by Sean Duffy of Brand Rants that sums up just how great going to conferences can be. Mack Collier’s take on his site today also reminds me why I enjoy going to all of these offline events as much as I do.

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by! It was fun to be previewed; apparently there was another story in a print publication here in town that ran the same day, so it was definitely a little weird.

I could say the same thing about growing up in New York. There's never enough time to finish exploring all that's going on. I had to force myself to get out and do more when I was living in Savannah; probably one of the reasons why I enjoy going back so much to specific places when I'm there.

Looking forward to some more conversations as I get back into a routine...

I lived in Nashville for a couple of years and never viewed what you’ve captured for us here. I bet it’s amazing in person. Beautiful, thanks for sharing!

I found you through jtrigsby’s blog and look forward learning more from you in the future. I find your dedication to your community and The Women’s Fund commendable.
