Five Places to Take Pictures in All 50 U.S. States

The “Great American Road Trip” is a dream shared by many, myself included. So I got to thinking about what I would like to do if I were to visit every state in the U.S. There are obviously too many great things in this country for one person to photograph everything in-depth during one lifetime …

A Walk in the Woods

I don’t recall sharing this story before but it is kind of embarrassing. I was on a trail looking for an overlook of Taylorsville Lake and in parts you have to go through that thick brush and into the forest you see on the left. After some time, I saw a bunch of white things …

Minor League Baseball Game Photo

It’s not often that I go back and post older photos on my blog but I haven’t been able to get this photo off my mind. The funny thing is that when I lived in Kentucky, this photo really didn’t strike me as being one of my better photos from my time there. However I …

“Discovering” Gems in Your Files

Picture: Young Kids Enjoying the Lighting of a Giant Hot Air Balloon at the Kentucky Derby Festival Balloon Glow, Louisville, Kentucky Here’s a great quote. “In absence the heart grows fonder.” While looking through long-tucked away unprocessed files for stock photo submission material last week I found a number of images that I had overlooked …

Discovering Appalachia

Last Saturday my friend Jeff and I visited the Red River Gorge in the Daniel Boone National Forest for the first time. We had each heard a lot of good things about it from the people at our ad agency in Louisville, so we figured why not experience it during the peak of fall season? …

Triptychs

Taken in sequential order, the first image in this series of photos represents my initial photo of this pre-visualized scene of the Falls of the Ohio and the Downtown Louisville skyline. The middle photo represents my 3rd attempt at shooting the scene in more flattering light but missing the train, and the bottom photo is …

Fall is Alive and Well in Kentucky

I took this shot today (10/20/06) at the Bernheim Forest in Clermont, Kentucky. According to the Kentucky Department of Tourism website, this is about 30% of peak fall colors. I can’t wait to see what 100% looks like in that case! My 27th birthday is this coming Thursday, October 26th so maybe I’ll be lucky. …

The State Fair… in Kentucky – 8/18/06

Almost every year I’ve gone to either L.A. County Fair or the Orange County Fair with family or friends. Yet I’d never been to a state fair, of which California’s is located in Sacramento. Since I’m currently living in Kentucky, yesterday afternoon I decided to go to the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville. As I …

Honest Abe and My Old Kentucky Home

The elementary school version of Abraham Lincoln is that he was born in a Kentucky log cabin then made his mark in Illinois before becoming a legendary United States president. In the AAA Tour Book I discovered that Abe’s birthplace was within driving distance of Louisville so I decided to go check it out. The …
