Louisville at its finest...

I took this picture at the Kentucky Derby Balloon Glow during the great Derby Festival as it leads up to the running of the greatest two minutes in sports... the Kentucky Derby. As a native of Louisville nothing presents a better canvas for photography then the Kentucky Derby Festival. The Balloon Glow, the Balloon race, Mini-Marathon, the bed races, the Kentucky Oaks, and the Kentucky Derby. There are many more activities then what I mention above, but those seem to be the most popular. One of these years I will take off from my "real" job and take photos at all the events and try to present them on my canvas.

At the top of my "bucket list" I would be at the derby close enough to the track to shoot my own photographs of the thundering herd coming down the stretch to the finish line. If you ever get a chance search the photo taken of Secretariat (the greatest horse of all time) as the jockey is looking over his shoulder to see no one within 10 lengths of that awesome horse. If you ever get a chance to come to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby I highly suggest it. Happy Derby to everyone! Till next time....
