100 Blissful Memories {Part IV: Around the Hotel}


31) A Photographer’s Paradise: This was taken on Wednesday night, from Alli’s suite.  I’d seen the beauty of the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, by simply walking to the concierge to check in, but when I looked out from the window and saw all the symmetry I was visually fulfilled!


32) While Walking With Casey: The atrium did nothing for my hair.  But, at least there were orchids!


33)  Visual Stimulation Abounds:  Not only was there friends around ever corner, symmetry, and flowers, but there was architecture, too.


34) This May or May Not Have Been Her Room, Don’tchaknow: I don’t know if it was just one of Sarah Palin’s supporters, or if it was her room, but I surely could not pass up snapping this picture.


35) And Then Security Taps Your Shoulder:  I snapped a few pictures of this area, and just as I was turning around to continue to where our morning meeting was, on Thursday, I was confronted by hotel security.  Apparently, the United States Air Force was meeting in the Presidential Lobby and only those with clearance could take pictures.   I said, “But I’m with the Blissdom Conference and my name is Secret Agent Mama.  Surely I’m on a list!”   (Ok, ok, I didn’t really say that.)

36) Benjamin Franklin:  I heard he was kind of lascivious, but I was still happy to capture his image.  You know?  Since he’s dead and this is his dead ringer.


37) Whenever Possible, Reflect:  It’s even more fun with friends!


38) Let’s Recap:  We have friends around every corner, symmetry, flowers, architecture AND water fountains.  There’s more, just you wait!


39) My Shoes on a Rock:  Heather, Bridget, and I (see #37) took a little walk, through the atrium, on Thursday night.  This was the last picture that filled my 16GB memory card.


40)  Looking for Love in all the Right Places:   I found this heart in the granite at the registration area.  If that doesn’t give you an idea what Blissdom was all about, I don’t know what will.

    I have loved your photos from Blissdom. They make me a little sad I didn’t get to attend, but I have enjoyed living vicariously through your lens.
