22 years

Unrelated the rest of this post: I took this selfie at the Weston Art Gallery. It’s a work by Chris Engman called Containment and it’s a part of the FotoFocus biennial that is wrapping up in Cincinnati. I really liked “stepping in’ to this photo. — 22 years ago, my oncologist and I decided to […]

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 […]

Beguiled by the Wild

The above photo came out of the camera demanding no additional editing (unlike the poorly lit image below). I’ve seen glimpses of this Beguiled by the Wild mural online, but finally took a detour to see it in person. I didn’t realize the 18 murals of animals spanned the career of Charley Harper. (All the […]
