Where Was That Photo Taken?

  • October 7, 2017

We've all been there. We take several photos of a memorable trip, a special event, or just photos of some interesting things that we see.

Eastern Downtown Louisville

  • August 25, 2017

Today's photowalk was concentrated in the east end of the downtown area. I had not done a street photo shoot in this area before.

St. Matthews Street Festival

  • August 6, 2017

I spent a little time at a street festival in the suburban city of St. Matthews yesterday. The format was pretty much like most such events - streets closed off and a variety of vendor booths.
