Ric and I spent Saturday morning at Lost River Cave and Trails with several members of the Sunny Sixteen Photography Club. It was a great morning to be out on the trails taking photographs of the beautiful fall foliage. I was concerned that I wouldn’t find anything new to photograph while we were there, but was once again proved wrong. There is always something new for the eyes to see at Lost River.
This past weekend I went on the Kelby World Wide Photo Walk with a group of fellow photographers here in Bowling Green, KY. This was the first year I had participated in the walk and I really had a great time. I’ll definitely be going on the walk in future years. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day:
Ric and I took a quick trip to Mammoth Cave National Park to see if we could capture some of the beautiful fall colors. We weren’t disappointed. We happened to get there at a perfect time to catch some awesome reflections on Sloan’s Crossing Pond. I’m told the pond is a bit dry right now, but there was definitely enough water there to paint a gorgeous reflection from the trees. Enjoy!
A few rays of sunshine to brighten your day!
Are you looking for something fun to do this weekend in the Bowling Green area? Well, look no further! Check out the local art scene in Bowling Green and Franklin. You won’t be disappointed. Here are some places you can visit and support local artists:
Drive a short distance down I-65 to Franklin, KY and stop in the Gallery on the Square to view the Sunny Sixteen’s “In Reverse” exhibit. This exhibit, sponsored by The Studio on Main, is in conjunction with the Festival on the Square which features an antique car show.
If you take a walk around downtown Bowling Green, you can find an exhibit at The Presbyterian Church at 10th and State streets. This exhibit features art from Christy Long, as well as a few pieces from me. Christy has a gorgeous multi-media piece on display there and it is a must see.
Just a few blocks away, step into The Public Theatre of Kentucky and see lots of pink art that goes hand in hand with the current performance of Cabaret for a Cause. Purchase of tickets for this show, as well as the purchase of any of the art on display, benefits the local Catherine Heltsley Foundation for Breast Cancer.
Lastly, take another short drive to Smiths Grove and visit their branch of the Bowling Green Public Library. There is a nice display of art from a few members of the Sunny Sixteen Club for you to enjoy.
There are just too many opportunities to take in the beauty of art and support local artists while you’re at it!
On a recent Sunday morning, Ric and I were driving around Bowling Green searching for inspiration for an upcoming photo exhibit I am participating in with the Sunny Sixteen Photography Club. The theme for the exhibit is In “Reverse” due to it being in conjunction with a classic car show in Franklin, KY. We spotted a few old cars for sale in a local body shop parking lot. I am generally not one to go for full shots of anything and this time was no different. I tried to capture a few details of a couple of the cars and really liked the rusty, worn-out feel of the images I walked away with when I was finished shooting. Here’s to the classics!
Have you recently gotten a dSLR camera, but you’re just not certain what all those buttons are for? Maybe you’ve had one for awhile and you love to take pictures, but really want to take things a step further and take better pictures. Why not take a photography class and learn more? I offer a four hour beginner’s class, as well as a four hour advanced class and a business class to help you become a legal operating business in Kentucky.
Contact me today for more details and to sign up. I look forward to hearing from you.
