Another old photo for the evening—
An awe inspiring view of the Great Smoky Mountains, as seen from the Foothills Parkway in Blount County, Tennessee. I took this back in 2012 with my Panasonic Lumix, I believe.
I cannot fathom why people would think that Tennessee is not a beautiful state. I just can’t. There is so much natural beauty that surrounds us, especially where I live, in the vicinity of the Cherokee National Forest. I am thankful for everyday that I get up and that I can see those purple hued mountains off in the distance.

Nobody would ever believe me when I’d say that dams could be quite photogenic when the situation calls for it. I took this at a rather close distance near Chilhowee Dam in Blount County, Tennessee.

The second photo shows the distance from the dam itself to the road. You can just barely make out the road from this vantage point.

Old photo for the evening—
A closer shot of Chilhowee Dam’s floodgates. When the lake is low, you can actually stand next to the dam and overlook everything. At the time, I wasn’t really thinking about the fact that there was a reservoir being held back behind me.
This is in Blount County, Tennessee.

Random photo for the evening—
This is a rather old photo that I had taken back in 2011, when I started to get into urbexing. Pictured here is the ruins of Calderwood Baptist Church, which was abandoned during the 1980s. The town of Calderwood itself no longer exists, as it was completely abandoned during the 1960s, when the workers who were tasked with maintaining the nearby Calderwood Dam were sent away to other towns to find work.

My take on Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” that I painted, possibly in 2010? As you can see, it’s not finished, as I didn’t add the city in the valley below. Someday, I may get around to finishing it up.

Where do you think Van Gogh rates in the history of art?

I loved this so much!

This is so heartwarming. :’) I would like to add that Van Gogh is my favorite artist, too. My favorite will always be “Starry Night”. I loved that painting so much that I actually painted my own take of it a few years ago. It hangs on my bedroom wall to this day.
