World Diabetes Day

November 14, 2008 was World Diabetes Day and the project included the 5/3 Building and Tyler Davidson Fountain in Downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The idea is to get picture of hundreds of icon buildings and structures all over the world photographed in Blue on that day. I set out last night to capture the building and fountain last night. It was going to be the last warm night of the season as a cold front was approaching. The square was full of Holiday items like the skating rink and the huge Christmas tree. I was hoping the City of Cincinnati was going to put blue lights in the fountain but settled on the glow of blue light off the building behind the fountain. There were no other photographers there last night so I guess this is it for the project. The night was pleasant and I was able to park close so I did not have to walk far with my gear. I sent the pictures along to the project and I hope folks enjoy the end result.

Strolling on the Wooden Walkway

Last week at Lake Powell Crosley, it is always nice when the trees are turning. Most of the leaves are gone now. Winter is coming soon the winds felt cold tonight, a bit more of a chill than it has been up till now. Time to try and relax.

Rowe Woods Rest Stop

Rowe woods is one of my favorite places to walk the trails. It looked in full autumn color last week end. Wind and some rain this week has taken much of that way this week end. I will make another walk in the woods when I get home from the CNE band dinner in the afternoon.

I seldom stop here and sit, unless I have a lot of time on my hands. This is between the east lake shelter house and the wooden walkway on the west side of Powell Crosley Lake in Rowe Woods.

Last Meeting - Spring will be new begining.

Picture By Request.

The voters have spoken, not sure if it all was legit with how some people signed up and voted. But I do not think they make a difference. As much as I have read so far of the final returns. Some people just stayed home and some new folks got out and voted. We will see if Deeds is what proves out or the words. Time will tell.

Lake Powell Crosley - Autumn Colors

I went back to Rowe Woods today to get a few leaf pictures. I saw the portrait photographer lady there again with some clients. It is a great place to take some relaxed natural looking portraits. The clouds were thick and there seemed to be some sort of light smoke in the air. Like maybe first west of us, I have to check the news. This is where I often take pictures of leaves, off this small dock area.

Favorite Times

Went to Powell Crosley Lake today in Rowe Woods, it is my favorite time of the year to visit and walk through the woodlands. I started taking pictures of floating leaves there in 2006. I went to take pictures of wood ducks and ended up taking pictures of surface tension of falling leaves on the lake water. It has become a yearly tradition. The lake had a lot of moss on it this evening, we have been in a drought so the lake is low. Plan on talking a couple walks tomorrow, this time with both cameras and a tripod.

This is a version of a picture I put in a gallery Hocking Hills Spring 2006 which is a group of pictures taken that year. Mark Zurek, Jim Hartley Smith, b. schlake and myself all met early one morning for a photo shoot. Mark and I got there early and lost but soon found old man's cave and walked around it for about a hour. You can learn a lot about a man by looking him in the eye when talking with them. Was a great trip, this capture was later in the morning just walking along one of the many trails in Hocking Hills Ohio.

1892 - 2008

They tore the old church down on River Road, Cincinnati, Ohio. It had no longer been used for about 20 years. A once vibrant place to worship, get married, baptisms, and family functions that use to go on in this once grand old church. Was sad to see it go, I think they saved the bells and of course the stained glass. Time marches on.

Spotted on Anderson Ferry

Early one morning this past week or so, early morning fog. We waited while a few cars loaded and the barge to pass by in the dense early fog. Marvin was talking to the Pilot and he noticed I was taking a picture, Marvin stops in where I work and is a nice fellow. So is the pilot, he is kind of new, always fun to ride the ferry, except in the rain.
