Dia de los Muertos on 4th Street

One of the big reasons the family wanted to settle in Old Louisville was the fact that there are cool things to do. Friday night some of the merchants on 4th Street got together for a Dia de Los Muertos celebration. Continue reading “Dia de los Muertos on 4th Street”

SKETCHBOOK: The Three Amigos

That’s London, Patrick and Brayden. They’re the football players we call The Three Amigos. They don’t. I don’t think they ever have because I’m not sure they have ever paid attention to how obvious their friendship is. On the football field, it was obvious. Continue reading “SKETCHBOOK: The Three Amigos”

Prom Night for London

What a transitional year for my family, mostly due to the maturation of my son London. He’s a high school junior. He just turned 17. He has a serious girlfriend. And he just went to his first prom. That young lady in the cover photo is Danielle and that was his date for that traditionally pivotal high school dance ceremony, this year at the Mellwood Arts Center.

Prom Prep with Shelbie

This past Saturday, I got a chance to enter a new photo genre: prom prep. It was fun with our willing model Shelbie, who is totally beautiful, which you can see in the before and after photos above. I love that she was game for pretty much anything we did. It made my job much easier to just be able to shoot to my heart’s content. With what you’ll see, I think you’ll agree that she brought the pretty in a big way. Continue reading “Prom Prep with Shelbie”

St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the Highlands

Every year, one of the bigger deals in Louisville is the weekend before, or on, St. Patrick’s Day. With the profusion of Irish-themed restaurants along Baxter Avenue, having a parade in conjunction with St. Paddy’s is one of the no-brainers of the city. Continue reading “St. Patrick’s Day Parade in the Highlands”

My Favorite 2015 Kentucky Derby Week Activity

Louisville goes crazy during the lead up to the Kentucky Derby. The Derby, the “fastest two minutes in sports,” and, quite possibly, one of the last horse races to really matter on the national stage. There’s no vanity in that. Continue reading “My Favorite 2015 Kentucky Derby Week Activity”

Jukebox the Ghost rocked Headliners – so did Secret Someones and Little Daylight

I had the opportunity of rock out last night with Jukebox the Ghost at Headliners Music Hall on Lexington Road in Crescent Hill. As soon as I walked in, you could see the place was ready to jump. One of the reasons: Ben Thornewell was coming back home. Continue reading “Jukebox the Ghost rocked Headliners – so did Secret Someones and Little Daylight”

A few weeks ago, when I was sharing tips on how to take great fireworks photos, I also lamented the loss of the Waterfront Independence Festival that used to occur every July 4th on the Great Lawn at Waterfront Park. Continue reading “A look back at the Waterfront Independence Festival”
