- Rides without cars in a park without guests.

A slight headache due to the early morning wake up, the drive the day before and the beers from last night didn't help the mood set by the ominous rain and gray clouds that were going to make photography difficult. I had driven out of Cincinnati to visit family and once again meet up with my cousin Jeff to explore something abandoned, like we had done at Bush Stadium last year. The rain let up as we exited the gas station and ditched the "Corolla Rager." We traversed through the Vietnam-like waste high grass and swamps to "Fun Spot Amusement Park and Zoo." Despite the sudden stop of precipitation from the sky, the wet grass soaked our clothes and gear. By the time we had reached the inside of the park, the rain fell once again as we took cover from sight and nature in the picnic shelter of an abandoned amusement park.

I seem to make this excuse every summer, but again I've fallen behind on updating QC/D. I've tried to respond to every email and I'm sorry if I haven't kept up on all the comments. I got promoted at my conventional job, which has been nice. I've gotten more work with my photo job, which has been great. I got pushed out of a moving airplane at 10,000 feet in the air while attached to a grown man who guided us back to earth with a parachute (skydiving). I've also been playing a lot of bocce at Neon's, arguing with bank customer service and 700 WLW radio hosts, watching reruns of Full House, riding my bike, ate sushi for the first time, attended 18 Reds home games so far and have been slowly unpacking the multiple boxes of stuff in my room from when I moved. Life's been good, but somethings missing and I've ignored photography on top of that. Last night I finally went out and shot.
