At the moment, I'm a 54 year old "adventurer" who is afraid of snakes, occasionally too lazy to leave the front seat of the car for a photo op, and an overall lousy photographer. That said, I have a great interest in history and in documenting my surroundings before they no longer exist, which in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area is often. Favorites are old theaters, ad barns, truss bridges, historical markers, and anything else that looks or seems interesting, or sits still long enough for my camera to turn on.

I've always been a t-ball kinda guy.

Where would we be if our ancestors had shied away from mound-founding? Gotta start somewhere.

Posted June 24, 2013

Disappointed in you. Circulatory systems are hugely over-rated.

Posted June 1, 2013

Just sad. Such a unique structure.

Posted January 27, 2013

Not surprising. It was looking pretty ragged when we were there a couple of years back. When spider webs are counted as structural members, you've got a problem. ;-)

Posted October 14, 2012

Yeah, because that's what we do.

Posted September 4, 2012

Especially if you spit on bikers.

Posted August 30, 2012

Man, I hate abusive signs.

Posted August 28, 2012

No, I didn't. These are nowhere near as common as Mail Pouch signs/barns, but some are remarkably well preserved. Whenever I see them, I stop for a shot.

Posted August 7, 2012

Mmmm. Mad Dog. Any pictures?

Posted August 6, 2012

I'm a Havarti man myself. Any leads on the home of Velveeta?

Posted July 28, 2012

They normally aren't in that kind of shape. Usually faded or patched over.

Posted July 27, 2012

Nice.

Posted July 1, 2012

Wee-wee!
