Downtown Street Shoot

Today’s walk around took me to downtown Louisville, one of my favorite spots for Street Photography.

I focused more east of the core downtown area, including the Second Street bridge and Slugger Field area. The area is a little more industrial, so I was able to capture some workers, including a man expertly backing a big rig into a narrow driveway.

Photos from this trip are at the first part of the Street Photography tab under the Photos Gallery.

Levy Building

One of my targets, while not street photography, was the 1893 Levy Building at 3rd and Market Sts.
Designed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style by Clarke & Loomis, the building housed Levy Brothers Clothing Store from 1893 to 1979. It is now home to the Old Spaghetti Factory.

Because the building was outlined in electric lights, the phrase ‘lit up like Levy’s’ became a popular expression describing bright, nighttime illumination.
