This Is Louisville was created by photographer Tim Girton in response to all the bad news coming out about the city he has lived in all of his adult life. Crime rates are down citywide and around the country. Homicide rates are decreasing. However, if you watch the local news stations, you’d think it was chaos and Armageddon.
In the TV news business, the axiom is “if it bleeds, it leads.” This Is Louisville strives to be different. Louisville is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. This website, along with a growing number of others, seeks to remind residents and visitors alike that this is a great place to be.
