Yesterday as I walked out of a restaurant in Walnut Hills, this man happened to be passing right in front of me. He looked at me and said: "How's that new restaurant?" We chatted about it and then he pointed out to me some of the more interesting places along picturesque Woodburn Ave. When we got to my car I asked if I could make a quick portrait of him. He held his bag of groceries, squinted in the sun and obliged me. I thanked him for the chat, we shook hands and went our separate ways.
Meanwhile at the Kenwood Towne Center, you're lucky if someone even says "thank you" for holding the door.

North of downtown Cincinnati, along an intercity that predates the interstate highway system, sits an abandoned Arby's fast food restaurant. The latest abandonment in a sprawling suburban shopping area.

The red roof may as well be the "golden arches" of pizza joints. And if the familiar structure didn't give it away, the faded leters will. From a marketing perspective, the company wide architecture standard is brilliant. The brand is easily recognizable. As consumers, we've been primed to spot the familiar shape of a Pizza Hut from a mile away... even if it's an abandoned one.
