What’s Not to Love About Downtown Bowling Green, Kentucky?
If you read Genuine Kentucky regularly and/or follow any of my Twitter or Instagram accounts, you know I’m never happier than when I’m taking pictures. Whether it’s cats, food, trees, coffee, birds, or any other personal passions – when I’m looking at the world through my camera, there’s always a big happy smile on my face.
Photography has become one of my favorite pastimes over the past few years. Fortunately, I live in a state as beautiful as Kentucky, so there’s always something extra special to photograph.
I’ve always kind of felt disappointed when the weather doesn’t cooperate with me. I prefer the sun to be looking down at whatever it is I’m looking at – to provide just the right lighting… God’s lighting!
However, I’ve also found that you can actually get some pretty amazing photos when the skies are overcast or even when there’s a storm abrewing, as my grandmother would say.
These pictures have reminded me of this fact. Michael and I recently spent a Saturday in Bowling Green. We walked around the beautiful downtown – enjoying and, of course, photographing absolutely everything. I’ll add the rest of the pictures either today or next Monday, but I wanted to put these up first.
The darker skies provided a dramatic backdrop for the pictures and all the fretting about “not having enough lighting” proved to be a waste of time. In fact, I’m pretty crazy about the way the droplets of water show up against the dark clouds and the overall “effect” of the pictures makes me smile.
Beautiful Fountain Square Park
Fountain Square Park, in downtown Bowling Green, is a real beauty. As a tree lover, I just kind of walk around in a daze looking at the gorgeous trees. I’m also a huge fan of the beautiful statues in the park. You can read more about Fountain Square Park on Visit BGKy.com.
If you’ve never seen Fountain Square Park, or if it’s been awhile, I hope you’ll go spend some time in the park soon. Spend time admiring the statues, reading the signs, and… by all means!… appreciating the huge trees.
