An evening in OTR

Final Friday means things are happening downtown in Over the Rhine. Stopped by We Have Become Vikings to pick up a few prints. Enjoyed meeting Matt (above left), having a brew and shooting the breeze with him and Jason. Then it was off to Indigo Hippo to look at the opening of a show that […]

Recreating a panorama

On September 24, 1848 Charles Fontayne and William S. Porter—using one of the earliest forms of photography, daguerreotype—photographed Cincinnati from atop a building in Newport, Kentucky, creating a sweeping, eight-plate panorama. 170 years later, I was lucky to stand with 4 other photographers to recreate the image with a technologically advanced Hasselblad camera for a […]

Pendleton Mapped

Wheeling around Pendleton on Sunday morning. The area is changing so fast. Some of it? Not so pretty. Most of it? Quite nice. I’ve always enjoyed this mural by Barbara & David Day, “Pendleton Mapped,” which tells the the 200-year story of the neighborhood.

Giddy to see the American Sign Museum repurposed and installed the old Cincinnati Gardens type today. Even using the old S! (hat tip to Eric) Related link: The Gardens Font Family Photo I grabbed of the building in March 2017 before it was torn down:

Flood peeping

Jim & Chris regard the city from the Observation Deck.   Smale Riverfront Park almost entirely submerged by the flood. I keep bumping into Zan.

Practical Disorder

Stopped by Indigo Hippo to pick up some old photo paper and check out their new digs. Was delighted to find the work of Luke Schutzman up on their walls. From what I can tell he works at the zoo, and his love of animals is expressed so well with color and line. All this […]
