Dragon Boat Festival, Louisville Ky

Sep132014KrisAndDragonWe went with our son to the dragon boat festival on the waterfront in Louisville yesterday. A bit out of the normal for us. It was interesting to catch glimpses of another culture. Dragon boat races are the highlight of the festival. Headed back home this morning.

Wood Ducks At Long Run Park

Sep122014WoodDuckPairSwimmingIt was the first time in a couple months I got to visit Long Run Park outside Louisville, Kentucky. It was a cool heavy overcast morning hinting of fall. It was great to see that many of the wood duck chicks I photographed this spring have survived.

The Incredible World Outdoors

Sep112014BlueDamselflyIs it not an incredible world we live in? How wonderful it is that I have been given the opportunity to capture some of it. Then I think how easy it is to overlook the dazzling spectacle that awaits the observer outdoors. The colors, shapes, sizes, smells and sounds fascinating. Take a walk, take a drive, and most importantly stop, sit and become absorbed in the surroundings.
