Flying Pig Marathon
May 4, 2019

Murphy and I were out inspecting the preparations for the 21st Annual Flying Pig Marathon. Food venders, sound systems, and signage were all getting ready for one of the biggest events of the year. There will be a half and full marathon, plus a 2 mile Flying Fur event for dogs and their human companions. Murphy and I will not participate directly, but will certainly cheer on the participants. Over 36k are expected to take part in the festivity’s...

Lighted Fountains At Dusk
April 26, 2019

Murphy and I spent the evening with a photographer friend, looking for light along the riverside parks in Cincinnati. This image, entitled Lighted Fountains at Dusk, feels sophisticated. Visions of black ties, evening gowns, and champagne pass through my imagination. A wisp of Bix Beiderbecke, or Benny Goodman hang in the air.

A Blustery Day On The River
January 13, 2019

The Holiday's have come and gone, and it's finally beginning to look a lot like Christmas. It was a Blustery Day on the River, and Murphy spent most of our walk sticking his snout deep in the snow.

The look of exhilaration is comical when Murphy frantically sniffs for his buddy, who scurries...

Cincinnati Holiday Scenes - Bokeh
December 20, 2018

Sniffing our way through downtown, Murphy and I came upon a Christmas tree adorning the base of the Roebling Bridge. Though eager to leave his Christmas card for other canine visitors, I intervened to avoid any possible electrocution. In pursuit of Cincinnati holiday scenes, I have been itching to try a little bokeh this year. A lighted Christmas tree is a great subject for this. Please enjoy this abstract tree at the end of the bridge, and hope it...

Murphy-Cam Gives Back
December 19, 2018

The Murphy-Cam Project is photographic and spiritual journey of man and dog along the river in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. Through this journey we found a call to help the homeless neighbors we met during our trek. The latest book entitled “Year of the Flood”, captures the haunting beauty of the 2018 flood, while celebrating the resiliency of a historic river town through the many festivals along mighty Ohio. It makes a wonderful coffee...
