I took this photo with my DJI Mavic Air drone on a hot summer evening in June 2019, and it is still my favorite capture of Mud Island River Park. The photo went viral on Facebook, being shared many times without credit to me (my fault for not watermarking it, oops), and I couldn’t believe the number of comments from native Memphians asking where this place was! That goes to show you that we have a long way to go in changing our own citizens’ perspectives of my hometown, but it’s an endeavor worth undertaking.
