I traveled with a friend back in January 2013 from New Orleans to Washington D.C. This video is meant to be a flashback of the sights and sounds we encountered during the 11 days we were on the road. It contains over 500 images shot with the Fuji X100, Nikon D800 and iPhone.
South Main Historic Arts District is a lively, artsy neighbourhood in the heart of downtown Memphis. The district was built up during the boom era of train stations and most of the buildings in the area were built between 1910 and 1920. In 1982, 11 blocks and 105 buildings were designated as historic.
In the middle of the South Main District is Beale Street which runs 1.8 miles from the Mississippi River to East Street. It is a significant location in the history of the blues. Today blues clubs and restaurants line Beale Street and it is a major tourist attraction.
