Enjoyed having President's Day off. Went for a run around the neighborhood and to the coffee shop. Shot some frames along the way.

UPCOMING EVENT: Discussing Cincinnati and its Bid to Host the 2012 Olympics

With the 2018 Winter Olympics underway in Pyeongchang, South Korea, the Independence branch of the Kenton County Public Library thought it'd be a good time to revisit a piece of little known local history: Cincinnati's bid to host the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.

I've written about the effort here on QC/D before and am looking forward to discussing it with a presentation at the library on February 22, 2018. To me, the bid represented pride, passion, and bold vision, something not always found when looking at our region's future. It was ambitious, unlikely, and a constant uphill battle, but it's fun to think about "what if?"

What if the 2012 summer games had been in the Queen City and not London? Could that have even happened?

Come learn about it at the Kenton County Public Library on 1992 Walton Nicholson Rd. in Independence, KY. 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on February 22, 2018.

January 2018

Photographs made in January 2018 that didn't necessarily fir into a larger story or post. Shot a lot for stories published recently, so not a whole lot of "one off" images. Despite having a new phone, I haven't been shooting nearly as much as I thought I would be with it.

Recap of this month's stories at the end of the post.

Images made with a Canon 7DMKII and iPhone X.

The "Ghost Town" of Amargosa

By all indications and quick glances, the place seemed to be a quintessential “ghost town.” The houses were long deteriorating, a truck could be seen with flat tires, and the nearby businesses were shuttered. Yet, there was still a spark of life among the white walls of the old hotel beneath the glaring sun.

The Mojave Desert is a peculiar place to find an opera house.
