By Jim Hornsby… Kay Ramming’s photography was recently shown at Provence Bakery in Hillsboro Village, and the combination of tasty French pastries and Kay’s street scenes in Paris was like a mini-tour of the city itself.

The Nashville City Center Building was the scene of such a sight for two days earlier this fall. Special Olympics rewards donors who raise more than $1,000 with an adrenaline-filled rappel down the face of a skyscraper in major cities all over the United States. The Nashville event included a 380′ rappel and took place in September 2011. Continue Reading
