Louisville 2015

During a trip to Atlanta, I stopped in downtown Louisville for a quick photo walk. I parked on Main Street across the street from the KFC Yum! Center, home of the Louisville Cardinals basketball team. Across the street was the LG&E and KU Energy Building...a really cool mirrored building causing nice reflections behind me. Walking further up Main Street, I came across the famous gold Statue of David which really stands out on that block. The Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum was packed with tourists and local residents out front taking photos in front of the huge baseball bat. I then went over to the Muhammad Ali Center, which is a great place to be if you're an Ali fan. It has lots of photos, a boxing ring and an auditorium where you can sit and watch early boxing films as well as film of Ali during speeches. There's even a shadow boxing area, which allows you to "shadow box" with the Champ. A short drive took me over to Papa John Cardinals Stadium, home of the Louisville Cardinals football team. A few blocks up the street found me at Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. Before getting back on the road, I drove across the George Rogers Clark Memorial Bridge into Clarksville, Indiana to get skyline photos of Louisville. My last stop in Louisville was 3302 Grand Avenue, which is the address of the childhood home of Muhammad Ali. The house was recently purchased, and is in the process of being turned into a museum.
