Memphis Mural Summer Solstice Photo Shoot

Months ago, one of my best friends, Alanna, noticed a new Memphis Tigers mural and wanted to take some pictures of me there. I loved the idea, but we never followed through with it until last Saturday, the night of the summer solstice. As long as we were taking pictures, we decided to hit a few more of Memphis’ many murals and make an event of it! We even brought wardrobe changes in the car.

Location 1: Go Tigers Go, on Hollywood at Central, near the Liberty Bowl

Me upon seeing the untended grass: “Ooo, I hope there aren’t snakes in here.” Alanna: “Wow, thanks Brens.”

Location 2: I Love Memphis, on Cooper near Central

Alanna is great at the “Fashion Blogger Pose,” but we both started laughing before every attempt and had to compose ourselves.

Our evening concluded appropriately with dinner on Overton Square. We tried to get into Babalu, but there was a two-hour wait, so we went to Bosco’s instead. It was a fun night that I’ll remember for a long time!
