Yep, it's another Album Cover Challenge fro 365project.  This was my entry for the 78th challenge, uploaded a couple of weeks ago.  It made finalist, and is in the votong for winner (but not doing well....)

Parthenon, Nashville Style

From Nashville Parks & Rec. web page:

"The Parthenon stands proudly as the centerpiece of Centennial Park, Nashville's premier urban park. The re-creation of the 42-foot statue Athena is the focus of the Parthenon just as it was in ancient Greece. The building and the Athena statue are both full-scale replicas of the Athenian originals."

We were in Nashville last week, on a College visit (Vanderbilt), and stayed at the Holiday Inn just off campus.  Our 12th floor balcony overlooked Centennial Park, as seen in the top photo.  The lower shot is from the sidewalk along West End Ave.  Taken just before 11pm, as we walked around after a bit of drama with a fire alarm (hint:  if you burn microwave popcorn in your hotel room, don't put the smoking bag in the hall...  try the balcony).

One of these days I'd like to visit the Parthenon properly, not just from a distance.  Both the replica, and the original, for that matter...

Oh yeah:....  the visit to Vanderbilt was cool, very nice campus.  More data for my son to crunch.
