Horse and Hound

•November 28, 2009 • 3 Comments

One of my favorite traditions in Kentucky is the annual “Blessing of the Hounds”, the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This takes place at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill and opens the formal hunting season of the Woodford Hounds, a local fox hunting club. The event provides many great photo opportunities and the riders are always very gracious. Today was especially nice as it wasn’t too cold and we had sunny skies (if I remember correctly the last two years were much colder and cloudy).

Fall at Shakertown

•November 4, 2009 • 4 Comments

One of my favorite places in Kentucky is Shakertown (Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill). It’s very peaceful and I love the old buildings and furniture. Fall is an especially beautiful time  and my images don’t do it justice. I learned several years ago that late afternoon is a great time to photograph; interesting shadows and the sun is a wonderful shade of orange. The leaves will be gone in less than a week so today was a perfect day to make the short trek.

Florence – Final Day

Beautiful fall day here; much nicer than yesterday (cold and rainy). Got Dad on the train OK; I assume he made the train change at Pisa Centrale and then to the airport OK. Walked around a bit, enjoyed the weather, and had lunch at one of my favorite trattorias.

Getting packed up and then probably going out later tonight with some friends to a concert right down the street. I figure if I’m tired tomorrow it will be much easier to sleep on the plane.

Got the idea for above image on a postcard I saw so really can’t take credit for the creative part of it.

A Few More Black and Whites

The organ images are from San Miniato al Monte, a basilica on one of the highest points in Florence. Great views and not many people (too much effort for the climb). The road image is one of the roads leading up to the Piazzale Michelangelo, a large square/parking lot overlooking the city. The dress is in a store I pass each day.

Edit: Added last image (lamp) Sunday night. Not sure how I feel about it…


OK, I know it’s not B&W, but I also like a color version of the above image as well. Not sure which one I like best…
