Had Green Nails

I Never Had Green Nails
If you paint with green all day
Remember that it might just stay
On every nail upon your hand
Looking like you had that planned
Then your nails will be all green
With each just like a jellybean

Photograph Sergio Bustamante's Art in Guadalajara

Sergio Bustamante is one of my favorite artists, and the opportunity to enjoy and photograph his art, fountains, furniture, and sculptures is an amazing experience! On the outskirts of Guadalajara, Mexico lies a small town called Telaquepaque. There are so many exceptional artists in this one small town, and people come from all over the world to experience their art and own it. From glass blowers to basket weavers, all the way to artistic furniture makers and more, can be found in and around this little town. This is where I found Sergio Bustamante's studio and gallery, something new  to experience. I can truly say I want to enjoy his art again and again. Just walking around this small town you can find his sculptures in random places too! He is truly a master of his art!

Bike to Riverbend

Riding a bike is always fun, and renting a bike in many cities can be easy. So, when I saw people enjoying the spaces around the Riverbend Music Festival and Chattanooga's beautiful downtown area on bike, I found the bike rental for myself. I just had to rent a bike and enjoy the area in and around the festival on a bike too. Here are some of the things I saw and enjoyed.

Promenade on The Tennessee River

Rivers call me to them. When I see a river I want to go to it, feel it, listen to it, be in it and a part of it, and go where it goes. As a child, I swam in many rivers and lakes in many different countries with my brothers and cousins. I still swim in them whenever I can. The rivers always seem to be going somewhere and that was what I loved about them. So, when I had the opportunity to see the Tennessee River, I greatly enjoyed stopping and being part of it for a few hours.
The Tennessee River flows through Chattanooga, Tennessee and meanders it's way down through Alabama and towards Mississippi before returning to Tennessee. It was also known as the Cherokee River and gets it's name from a Cherokee village called Tanasi.
I hope you enjoy my promenade on the Tennessee River and go meet a river near you soon.
