The French Concession by Dennis Bernhard


Shanghai has a very interesting history of semi-colonization. As part of that there is an area called the French Concession. As the name sounds, it is an area of Shanghai that was run by the french starting in the late 1800s.

This was my second favorite part of Shanghai. It’s has a completely different look to it. The tree lined streets really make you feel like you are walking through Paris.


Nashville's Parthenon Time-lapse by Dennis Bernhard

We got the first of what most people consider to be nice weather, last week in Nashville. Even though it was cloudy, the temperature was in the 70s and that usually bring people out in throngs. I think that's too hot but that's a different post. 

With the "nice" weather and people out, I knew Centennial Park would be packed. I already had planned to catch a sunset over the Parthenon but thought it would add a cool extra feature to have people out and about around the building as well. 

Turns out the sunset never developed because of the cloud cover but the people milling around, the clouds moving through and the transition from day to night made for a pretty solid time-lapse.
