I will be in Louisville KY on Sat with nothing to do but walk around with my camera. My wife will be at a meeting all day so I could use some help on some good places to check out. Anyone have some direction for me? I was thinking along the lines of cityscape, maybe some graffiti, cool architecture, or even a park. I am pretty open.

Fort Knox isn't far off. There is a good armor museum there if you enjoy that sort of thing.

Too bad it's too early for a visit to Churchill Downs for some racing, not sure if there's much going on there with training right now. It's a quick cab ride over though to check out the building.

Yeah I had thought of Churchill Downs and looked up earlier to see if there was anything, but the season doesn't start for a while. Practice would still be fun or even more interesting. I will have the car too I think so I may just shoot over there anyways. Thanks for the input. I can't wait for race season. I will just have to go back during the season too. I am only about ~2 hours from Louisville.

If you're still going to be free around twilight time you can cross the 2nd street bridge to Jeffersonville and get some nice city skyline shots with the river in front. I couldn't find a normal shot but you get the idea.

I live in Derby City, love, LOVE going to the track!! I've been several times and also saw the Rolling Stones in concert there a few years ago. Derby tine aroung here is FUN!

Didn't realize you lived so close....Hoosier fan??? Nice shot, however, my fav building is the Humana building.
