Welcome to See Middle Tennessee!

Greetings! My name is Brent and I welcome you to my blog!

I have lived in the greater Nashville area most of my life. Once I got behind a camera for the first time, I realized there's so many things out there to see. If it was not too far away, I wanted to see it and capture it. Many things have captured my attention over the years, such as neon signs, advertising barns, waterfalls, courthouses, and train depots to name a few.

Now that I have been at this for several years, I have put together an image collection representing every county in Middle Tennessee, as well as other nearby places not too far away, such as East and West Tennessee, Kentucky and northern Georgia and Alabama.

Whether you too are a photography enthusiast, have an interest in what's nearby or local history, or perhaps you just stumbled across this blog because I have what you googled, I hope you enjoy your stay! This blog isn't really meant to be a vacation guide - those guides always recommend the same places, and I too have been to those places, such as Opryland Hotel, Fall Creek Falls or the Jack Daniels Distillery. Instead, in addition to the widely known places, I've been to many of the lesser-known hole-in-the-wall places, places that time has forgotten, and places in between.

Every day, I'll post something different. Some days, I might continue the theme from the previous day, but usually I will have something random every day. If you'd like to see more, visit my website SeeMidTN.com where I also have galleries of photos that share a theme, or are grouped by counties, recommendations for the books that helped me find these places, and more!
