[Views of Cincinnati] #21 - 25

Cincinnati on a sunny, Spring evening with harsh blue skies that were reminiscent of a winter we never had. Closed bridges, country music, fences, bigger cities and Brutalist reflections.


"#21 - End of the Line."


21

The sun setting on the Skyline as seen from behind the fence, near the edge of an old bridge ramp. When the "Purple People Bridge" closed to automobile traffic, this concrete patio was left behind. In the map below you can see the other abandoned remains of the ramp, the whole thing is a parking lot now.

- The fence that prevents you from driving off the end, but not from walking to the edge. You can see the pillars that used to carry the road.

#22 - Willie Nelson

Because Willie Nelson likes to sing about Blue Skies - the East parking garage and the highest most point of the skyline: the Great American Tower.

#24 - Chicago

When you're in the heart of Chicago, you usually can't see the landmarks like the Sears and Hancock Towers, because the buildings adjacent to you are too tall. All you can do is look down the roads and see only pieces of buildings. Cincinnati is a little bit different - smaller, more quaint and the majority of the skyline juts up to 3rd. St. This frame reminds me of the views you see in Chicago when looking down those streets - just applied to Cincinnati.

The Great American Tower of the Cincinnati Skyline reflected in the windows of One Lytle (Lie-tell, not "little") Place.
