“Kat”pturing the Moment

Sometimes it seems like Florence does not have enough to offer when compared to the bigger cities that many of us are used to.

Florence is, however, moderately close to bigger cities with more to do and more to see. Being an hour-and-a-half from Huntsville and two to two-and-a-half hours from Birmingham makes it convenient to visit those places.

We are two-and-a-half hours from Nashville and five from Atlanta, but if you are okay with a long drive, it is well worth your time. All of these cities feel as if they have so much more for us to “do” — a wider variety of bars to frequent, places to eat and stores to shop. The malls are much more diverse when it comes to shops, and these cities have a larger variety of locations to explore.

Nonetheless, I have talked with other students who live in these surrounding cities and attend schools there, and they seem to feel the same way about the towns that their schools are in. I suppose it is natural to feel that way when you are around the same thing as frequently as we all are. That being said, it is fun to drive to these bigger cities to meet with friends from the area to explore what it has to offer.

I visited my friend Nolan Knight, who attends Middle Tennessee State University, in Murfreesboro, Tennessee recently along with two of his friends who attend Georgia State and Georgia College. We wandered around the outskirts of downtown Nashville and I took the liberty of exercising my creative talents and photographing the experience. I absolutely love going to places I am not familiar with and seeing what I can capture there. New places offer new opportunities. Be that to meet new people, make new friends, find new music, food, or clothing, traveling makes for great stories and experiences.
