Son of Beast Trackwalkers

- Dave walking and inspecting the track of Son of Beast in Spring 2008.

I walked up the steep, wooden steps and started to sweat. The coveralls were now more of a nuisance as the morning got warmer. Just shy of the 218 ft. peak, I knelt down and  swung my camera bag off my back, trying not to look down or behind me. I had lost count of the number of steps some time ago. Heights have never really bothered me, but this climb did.

I mounted up the lens I wanted and snapped the camera bag to a wooden post, dropping it would've been like throwing two grand down a 200 ft. hole. I wrapped my arm around a wire cable while my legs were shaking from a combination of the climb and the nerves. I peered out over the fog with a telephoto lens and saw Dave ascending the opposite peak. Then I started making photographs.

Hockey Night in Hamilton


Just north of Cincinnati in the city of Hamilton there used to be an old school ice rink. Open air with an aircraft hangar like roof, the facility embodied "old time hockey." Today it's a parking lot adjacent to a satellite campus of Miami University, but at one time the place made it to the silver screen - when Hollywood considered Cincinnati a "hockey town."

[Views of Cincinnati] Carew Tower Observation Deck

- Carew Tower observation deck in Cincinnati, OH.

The observation deck of the Carew Tower, the only one open to the public in Cincinnati, is vastly different than that of most major city tourist attractions. It served as the location for the five newest frames made in support of 224 Views of Cincinnati.

Milacron Ruins


Some not so good photos and a not too interesting story that came from the exploration of an abandoned, half demolished factory.
