I took some 100 or so photos around my neighborhood as the water was rising and around downtown nashville as the water peaked. Some of them were taken from the Shelby Street Walking Bridge just before they kicked everyone off of it. You could feel the structure vibrate due to the amout of water running below it:
I also shot this around downtown as i was there with my Flip Mino HD camera:
