I haven't really been happy with any of the pictures I've taken for over a month now, and I'm not sure why. There's some decent shots in there, but nothing really pops out to me and makes me feel like I really nailed something. I'd say that I need to get out of town, and see something new, but I'm pretty sure that almost all of these are things and places that I've never photographed before, or at least not for a few months or years. I've played with color, played with black and white, tried to shoot outside my normal box, and nothing feels satisfying.
Maybe I'm just stressed and tired. Who knows?
At any rate, here's a random selection of photographs of Knoxville. I hope you like at least some of them.
OK, I lied a little. I actually do like this one:

I like this one as well:

Like I said, they're not terrible pictures. My finger isn't over the lens and they're not blurry, but they're not really doing anything for me, and they're the best ones out of about a hundred rejects.
Maybe I'm just in a funk.
