Greetings from Nashville, Tennessee. This weekend I was an instructor at a photographic workshop that included a ton of photographers wanting to improve their skills and some beautiful models. So most of you would say, “What’s New?”
You never quite know who or what you are going to run into when you get out in the streets of “NashVegas.” It is such an eclectic mixture of people, places and things. It could be a movie star, a famous country musician, a sports star or it could be just some iconic location that you have heard about that you finally get to visit. This weekend though, we saw none of that. Our hopes were almost totally dashed until we came across a living legend.
Sitting in a parking lot next to our hotel was the world famous Oscar Mayer Wiener mobile. It is the new and improved wiener mobile. I do not know about you, but when I was a kid there was almost nothing more exciting then to see the wiener mobile and stand in long lines to get one of the whistles and an Oscar Mayer hot dog. It was a monumental event for me and every time now as an adult, I still feel the excitement, well for a few seconds. No longer is it the desire for a whistle but more so the memories from childhood and a chance to photograph this iconic mobile hot dog. And who does not love the Oscar Mayer wiener mobile?
And what about the song, we all know the song.
“I wish I were an Oscar Mayer Weiner. That is what I truly wish to be
Cause if I were a Oscar Mayer Weiner, everyone would be in love
Oh everyone would be in love, everyone would be in love with me!”
