It may be just another Summer’s Day for most. It may be just another sleepy Sunday morn for others. And, for many, it may be just another August heat wave to drive you to the pool or to the couch.
But not our very own Holly M. Smith.
We gave her the nickname of “Always Working.”
That’s because she always is doing just that: Always. Working.
And, on Sunday, it was no exception.
She loaded up the card with friends and her cameras and headed off to Henderson, KY. and a day full of live Thoroughbred racing at little Ellis Park.
This gal loves it almost as she does living.
Almost as much as she does photographing.
And, she has a blast at all three — living, racing, photography.
And, it shows it all her art forms.
Here’s are looks from Sunday at Ellis Park:
