A Story in iPhone Photos: From Busy Backstage as Disney Star Lucy Hale Makes Her Grand Ole Opry Debut

This is my niece blissfully enjoying a few days away from the stress of her studies to become a physician’s assistant. I love the colors, the bonnet, the shades… almost a ’60s vibe in her lounging. I was right there with her at my mom’s house near Nashville — which explains the photos above. As a treat for Jordan and her fiancee on their visit, a family friend took us to the Grand Ole Opry backstage, where we saw Opry stalwarts like Little Jimmy Dickens entertain a packed house. Disney star Lucy Hale made her Opry debut, with Hall of Famer Bill Anderson introducing her and watching her on the monitor, and the four house backup singers providing an interesting vantage point. The whole thing let us see the precision and complexity of the production. Fascinating. It’s always bustling back there.

MeetingThe story behind last week’s Wordless Wednesday photo: I walked around the corner from North Avenue onto Highland Avenue and saw a young man stop to take photos of an elderly man passing him. I started snapping as I approached, and the young guy posed next to the older one. Curious, I asked the photographer why he wanted a picture of the stranger. “Because we’re both wearing purple,” he said.

Next week: The story of the girl in the pool.

Wordless-Wednesday-3The story behind last week’s Wordless Wednesday photo: A friend and I walked the Beltline to Piedmont Park, and we came across this pair at the corner of Piedmont and Monroe. Their human had rigged the Coca-Cola box onto a skateboard he was riding along the sidewalk. He said he made the helmets. The pups were getting lots of attention. They remained impeccably behaved. Next week: The story behind the encounter above.

wordless wednesday, wordleswednesday, electric car charger, old and new carsThe story behind last week’s Wordless Wednesday photo: I was struck by the image of this beautiful classic parked next to a plug-in station for electric  vehicles, at the Westside Provisions lot in West Midtown, Atlanta. Could the designers of the old Chevy have imagined the scene? Heck, maybe they did. This was my first WW. I’ll share the lions’ tale next week.
