May - July 2019


Photographs made between the end of May 2019 and the end of July 2019 that didn't have a place in a larger story or post.



Above and below: Discarded parking meters stored in a city parking garage, victims of the conversion to credit cards.


- Obey Giant on a sign encouraging cyclists to heed caution. 


Above and below: this particular OTR building always looks good in the setting sun.


Doesn't look bad at night either:


- Cincinnati's Brighton neighborhood encourages you to be nice. 

- The Bailey.

- Another match, another march, another season.


When I first started this website, I used to author posts under the pseudonym “Gordon Bombay” (Emilio Estevez’s character in The Mighty Ducks trilogy). He sent me this when I recently turned 30:


In Early May, I went to Havana, Cuba. It's taken me awhile to finish writing about that experience (and edit the photos no thanks to a long and drawn out fight with Adobe over their software and technical “help”):

- Havana, Cuba, May 2019.


Hopefully I'll have it wrapped up soon. Corn dogs and High Life help while editing, though:


The US Men’s National Team played in Cincinnati for the first time. They also played rather poorly. However, all the Venezuelan fans in attendance seemed to enjoy themselves and I got to watch their team rack up three impressive goals while the Americans puttered around. Not a bad day.

P.S. The US Women's Team drew more people back in 2017.


- Bachelor party carried by the streetcar. The groom at the center was mentioned here and here.

- Portrait of “Bolo Jay” who we met at MOTR.

- Benny the Beagle. 

- Ryan.

- Travel Inn Motel doing its best Florida Project impression.


I wrote about the structure seen below back in 2016. I'm still enamored with its design and all of its interesting details. Here's a bunch of random shots because this parking garage and its environs are fascinating.







Next two shots: 8th St.



And finally, Jesus at Delicias Supermercado E Taqueria:




Back on the road with some regularity (and more film) soon. Till then: other regular QC/D posts on the way, bummed that Summer is almost over.

I've been reading some really awesome work by Dale Brumfield. Check this stuff out:
- His tales of working maintenance in an amusement park.
- His story of “Lawn Chair Larry.”
- This beautiful tribute to his father.
- Dale's latest book, "Bad Day at the Amusement Park,"comes out in paperback around Sept. 1.
