Project 31

I’m happy to report that Project 31 is finally complete! I wish it only took me 31 days to complete but it took me about 50 days. This is the first photo project I’ve completed so it’s better late than never. I’ve tried Project 365 in 2008 and 2009 and failed miserably. I think the furthest I got my first year was in the early 100s. In 2009, I attempted

Bernheim Forest

I always pass Bernheim Forest on my way to Louisville, but in the twenty-four years I’ve been living here, I’ve never stopped. I didn’t have class today because of Election Day, so my flickr friend JJ and I headed up there. After getting there and walking on one of the trails I was kicking myself for not visiting Bernheim sooner. It’s so pretty and peaceful to be surrounded by the woods. I live on a 185-acre farm and I am surrounded by woods but they’re not as extravagant. If we have any more warm days and I’m off I’m definitely going back before we head into Winter. After going on a short trail and then across the Canopy Bridge we headed back to JJ’s car to find another spot to take pictures at. When he put his key in the ignition his key would not turn. He wrestled with it for about 30 minutes, I even tried and no luck. He eventually called a tow truck and I had to find someone to take me back to my car, my car was about 15 minutes away. I’m usually not in these situations so after calling my brother and finding he […]

In the city

Yesterday I spent the afternoon with a couple of friends (Tim, Courtney, and Christina) snapping pictures around downtown Louisville. It was refreshing to be around other inspiring people and an inspiring city because I haven’t been picking up my camera very frequently. I should go out more often and try to find things to take pictures of, but honestly that requires too much effort on my part. ;-P We ended up on top of the building where Christina works and got a nice view of downtown; at least one you don’t get to see very often. I don’t get into downtown very much simply because I’m not as familiar but what a beautiful downtown area we have…at least the good areas of downtown. None of us girls got very close to the edge but Tim was practically on the edge snapping pictures at people walking by. He is much braver than I am. I’d really like to go on a road trip soon and spend the day taking pictures at a nearby city. In a few weeks my brother is coming home to visit and we might end up in Nashville for a day so that might remedy the road […]
