4. Thanks. That's right next John Hunt Morgan's house.

Look up Morgan's Raiders.

5. They were all long exposure images. I used my IR filter.

My camera was set to Monochrome/w red filter. Each exposure was up to 4" long.

3. I especially like the last one

Looks like it should be on one of the big horse farms with black board fencing.

7. Is that a ghost in the top middle window of the first shot?



Very nice! I love old architecture.

8. That's former mayor Jim Gray's house.

I expanded it and can't tell what it is. If it was a ghost, it's a very big ghost.

Note the huge tree in the center of the third image. That's a Ginkgo that was probably brought over from China by Henry Clay. It's at least 200 years old

Man, I love those old craftsman homes!

10. It was probably set back, so not visible in that shot.

Maybe it moved to the Bodley-Bullock house (image 4)1816.

16. Thank you.

It's strange carrying around a tripod, but that's OK.

18. It' still a great place. We have become a town for restaurants and breweries.

You need to check out the Distillery District on Manchester st. You can get good pizza there too. Goodfellows Pizza.
