Residence, Chickasaw Gardens



This is a residence in the Chickasaw Gardens neighborhood in Mid-Memphis, and is typical of that area. The neighborhood consists of several quiet, residential streets surrounding a small, pretty lake. A portion of the movie 21 Grams (Sean Penn, Naomi Watts) was filmed in this neighborhood.

Pretty home, looks more like an estate!

Thanks for the compliments! No, I do not mind. Currentlt, I am using two cameras. A Canon A710 IS, (point and shoot, my wife's camera) and a Canon S5 IS (glorified point and shoot).

The majority of my pics are using Aperture Priority, some I shoot in full manual mode, or at times Program. Never Automatic.

I will also use a circular polarizing filter on my S5 IS camera. And a little bit of photo editing via photoshop for exposure correction. And Photoshop to convert my color pics to Black and White pics.

Still, I am currently looking into a Canon Rebel XTI DSLR camera and two lenses. Cost is keeping me DSLR-less in the mean time.

I could go on and on, but then I'd clutter up your blog with me typing away. If you would like more information, just send me an email. Email should be in my profile.

Southern elegance, right there. I hope the residents live elegant lives in there.

Sounds like my kind of place with its beautiful home design and near a lake! I wonder how much these homes cost - probably something I wont be able to afford! =)
