Goodbye to The Gardens

There was never a better place to watch hockey in Cincinnati. The Gardens was classic. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

February 2018

Photographs made in February 2018 that didn’t necessarily fit into a larger story. Made a couple quick frames posts this month, still working on some larger and more detailed articles. It’s been an interesting 28 days starting with ice storms and freezing temps, ending with warm weather and dramatic flooding. Here’s some stuff seen along the way.

The Flood of 2018 II

Following up the recent post that was shot on a rather bleak looking day, another look at this year's flood as the Ohio River peaked. Barring any more excessive rain, the forecast is calling for the water to recede. Guessing that the next flood shots you'll see inundated across social media, the local news, and even here, will be of mud covered streets and cleanup.

The Flood of 2018

There's no doubt that if you've been paying attention to the local news lately, you've seen how the Ohio River is rising, encroaching on the shores of Cincinnati. The is the highest the water has reached in some time. It's not quite at the levels of 1997, but it's dramatically higher than it has been in the past few years when mild springtime flooding isn't unusual. Sawyer Point, Yeatman's Cove, the Serpentine Wall, and Smale Riverfront Park are all covered. Mehring Way is blocked, parts of the massive Riverfront Parking Garage are closed to commuters, and shallow water is swirling around the base of the Bengals' Paul Brown Stadium. Outside of Downtown, homes and businesses in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana have already experienced damaging water. By the time I got around to posting these on a Sunday afternoon, the river has risen even higher and could potentially grow by a few more feet on Monday.

Some quick frames made this past Friday, on a dreary day that made the 70's era arena plaza and riverfront look even drearier.
