Zoo Blooms

I was at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens last week to shoot Blooms & Tunes for the Cincinnati Enquirer, an evening of live music coordinated with the zoo's annual spring flower display. While my focus was on the people, especially the many adorable dancing children in attendance, i couldn't help but be drawn to take a few quick snaps of the beautiful flowers all around me. This is certainly deserving of a special trip just to shoot the blooms, but i wanted to put these up regardless. Maybe it will serve as a nudge to get me back there before all the petals fall. And perhaps that damn peacock will finally display its fan tail for me, something he has never done in my presence.

Black & White Northside

I've been looking back through some of my past Northside images to see where i have been and do some re-editing. I always find it interesting to give my outtakes second and third looks to see if i missed anything on the first go-around. While doing so i decided to revision some of this body of work as black & whites. Some of these are therefore "new" images and some i have published before, but all of them are new to this B&W presentation. All these images of Northside are within walking distance from my home. Welcome to the hood...
