Twenty photographers from the Eastman Camera Club got to spend the day in a workshop with Bill Fortney in a special place called Memory Lane in Rogersville Tennessee. This place is full of nostalgia from times gone past. There was an old country store where I could have spent the entire day making photos.
Lots of old cars
An old fire engine from the Mount Carmel Fire Dept.
Lot of rust
Cool old hood ornaments
Even a car that doesn't rust
Wilbur the flying pig and a garage full of special cars, trucks, vans and one suspect couple under the VW bus.
We spent about 3 hours there and could have spent 3 days! This is only a small sample of what we had to explore. The thing we didn't have enough of was time. There is so much to see and photograph.
In addition to making some fun photos we got to make some memories with other photographers. It's the people that make these outings fun and the people we will remember after the photos are forgotten. I enjoyed seeing some friends I hadn't seen in a while and spending time with some new friends. We were especially blessed to have Bill Fortney as our instructor for the day. I can't say enough about Bill. If you want to know more about him and his character check out this interview on photofocus
