f8inmemphis Flying fish: This series of sculptures along the Vollintine-Evergreen Greenway in Midtown Memphis has been up a while, but it caught my eye today as one of those little things that makes the city better. The artwork is called "Are There Fish in Lick Creek?" and is by Jeannie Tomlinson-Saltmarsh. Each fish is three feet long and mounted on poles 12 to 15 feet high; they spin in the wind like weathervanes. 3d

f8inmemphis Big River's big bend: Just south of downtown Memphis, the Mississippi River makes a sweeping turn toward the west as it flows south toward the Gulf of Mexico. The best place to see this is from a park with two names: Chickasaw Heritage Park, also known as DeSoto Park. When you stand atop one of the two Chickasaw burial mounds in the park, you get what many consider to be one of the best views of the river on the lower Mississippi. 7d

f8inmemphis The older, main part of the Hotel Chisca is reflected in the windows of the starkly different, newer "motor lodge" addition that opened in 1961 in downtown Memphis. The newer portion of the long-abandoned hotel also is being converted to apartments, along with the original eight-story building that opened in 1913. Completion is scheduled for late 2015.
