I haven’t written a blog in awhile. I don’t know why. I guess I haven’t had much to say. I don’t have much to say today either. Enjoy this gallery of new photos. I’ve been running around Kentucky and Knoxville taking photos. Comments and feedback are always welcome. Feel free to also share your own gallery.

Tennessee Theatre Marquee Black and White. The sun was going down and the marquee was lit. Perfect timing.
Bijou Marquee at night creates a glow in the dark.
The black and white gives this night time photo of downtown Knoxville a vintage feeling

Empty shops and peeling paint in downtown Williamsburg, Ky.
The Whitley Co. Courthouse is not very impressive on it’s own. But the giant flag was eye catching.

The H on the rooftop sign is missing completely. But it’s still a cool sign
Glyndon Hotel Sign is a cool old sign on a hotel with a rich history in Richmond, KY
Purdy’s is a great little coffee shop in downtown Richmond, KY
Currier’s Music is located in downtown Richmond, KY. While this store is empty, they haven’t closed. They’ve moved just around the corner
It’s not a Tuesday Trek, but it was still a trek. I went to Kentucky for dinner with my family. Before I headed home the next day, my mom and I headed out to Nicholasville for breakfast. We had delicious breakfast at Cottage Cafe on the edge of town. My current wish is to find a place like this on our Tuesday Trek! The service was great, the food was awesome, and the atmosphere everything I wanted. They also have lunch and dinner. That menu looked pretty good as well.
After eating, we went downtown so I could take photos of the courthouse. The courthouse itself is Gothic in design and looks different from most courthouses. I walked around a bit but I wanted to get home, so I couldn’t get as many photos as I wanted. But I will be back!
