Cincinnati & The 86th All-Star Game

For the first time since 1988 (and the fifth time overall), Cincinnati hosted a Major League Baseball All-Star Game. For the 86th rendition of the "Midsummer Classic," the city was transformed as the best players in all of baseball converged on the Queen City.

In the days leading up to the game and having been fortunate enough to attend the game itself, I wanted to document how the city changed to accommodate it's time in the spotlight. I wanted to document the event from a fan's perspective, my perspective.

In the future I hope to do a more in-depth retrospective. For the time being, I'll let the photographs (and a few captions) tell the story. All the photographs can be viewed on my personal website, here

The Abandoned Pennsylvania Turnpike

Up to that point I had never had a more terrifying experience while driving. I was trying to keep an eye on the semi in front of me, following his movements while avoiding his rear end. Behind me, a continuous line of yellow light presumably trying to do the same thing.

Some of Cincinnati's most iconic buildings were designed by famed local architecht Samuel Hannaford and his Sons: City Hall, Music Hall and the Observatory are a few. In the city's East Price Hill neighborhood, a stoic Hannaford designed structure sits at the corner with hopes that it could see prominence once again.
