Last month my wife and I took a trip I took a trip to Louisville Kentucky for her to speak at the regional Society of Biblical Literature Conference. Other than attending her lecture, that cut me loose for several days to go do photography. So with that in mind, I finished some of my research that I had started at home.
Some friends on Nikonians.org had provided me with some ideas, one of which was Fort Know. Hey that sounds good so I googled the directions and when I read the comments on several posts, I discovered that almost all of them included the phrase ,"No visitors - No exceptions". Seems you can't get in but you can only get photos from the gate. Then there were the horse farms that there are so many of (Also the Kentucky Derby is held nearby) but the rain arrive when we did so I decided to grab some brochures in the hotel and work from them and the surrounding Louisville area.
Following are shots of Louisville ( a really interesting place) and later I will post about the Markers Mark Distillery.
The Ohio River and one of several bridges crossing in Louisville. (No, I didn't get the names) This one is next to the KFC arena.

Louisville has different design hourse statues all over the area (you will see another later). Raleigh NC has done something similar with wolves (the NCSU symbol).
Hey, you read about it here and got it straight from the horse's mouth (all together now - ggrroooaann).
To digress, a little of the trip there.
Yes there really is a house under all that. This is somewhere in Ky. No, I don't have GPs on my camera. Funny thing about the trip, the Garmin took us off the main interstates like I-77 on the way up but took us back on I-77 on the way back. (Glad is did as we hit a lot of snow on the way back and we would have hated to have to drive on those four lanes and some two lanes in the snow.
Lovely view of the KFC arena from our room. (How do you type sarcasm?)
An incredible water fountain in front of the KFC arena. The splash of the water as it "dances around" is almost musical. This is a must see at night.
A disappearing art. Every barber shop had a shoe shine person. I haven't seen one in years. Strange as I have been amazed at how people don't have shined shoes anymore in church, at funerals, etc. (Glad I had my P&S with me for these shots)
Another horse, this one in front of our hotel.
