Murphy In The Morning
May 16, 2019

Always excited to go outside, but rarely happy to have his photo taken. This is a shot of Murphy in the morning giving me the business for shoving a camera in his face. Of course, I couldn’t help myself. I was testing out a Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM, rented for a portrait project which I will cover in a later post. Murphy is not one to sit idle, so there are few shots of him, unless lighting is great. Being able to stop down to f2.8...

Talk To The Homeless
May 8, 2019

I want to encourage you to talk to the homeless. Imagine walking through a world where no one acknowledges your existence. And if they do, it is only to belittle or humiliate you. Imagine the loneliness, isolation, and depression. Imagine not knowing what, or if, you will eat today, or where you will sleep tonight. Allow yourself to step into those shoes for a moment. Now imagine a smile, a hand shake, or someone stopping to ask how your day...

Light Therapy At Night
May 7, 2019

Murphy and I spent a little longer than planned taking in the beauty of our city at night, and participating in some light therapy.

I must have looked funny laying on the ground, propping my camera up with keys to find this image. Murphy kept bystanders entertained as I puttered...

Flying Pig Marathon

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...

100 Joe Nuxhall Way
May 2, 2019

Enjoy this whimsical view of Mr Red through the fountain. His recumbent gaze along 100 Joe Nuxhall Way, reveals 150 years of Cincinnati Reds history. We see him here, relaxing on his bench, created for the occasion. Before this series adorning parks around the city, the only Bench I can recall associated with the Reds organization was Johnny. The hall of famer homered twice in game 4 of the 1976 World Series, as the Reds defeated the New York...
