Historic West Fourth Street. 😀🏙️❤️

On the opposite corner of Elm and Fourth Streets is Caffe Barrista. They make the best sausage, egg, and cheese croissant breakfast sammiches…

I really like Caffe Barrista a lot. And they have really great salads…

And great cookies too.

A foggy morning in Northside.

It was another foggy morning in Northside. 😀🌁❤️

And it was really foggy downtown too…

Weston Art Gallery.

I don’t miss many things about my old job. Not very many at all. But the one thing I miss the most was the location. I felt more centrally located in the Central Business District when I was located at Eighth and Main Streets. As opposed to now, being tucked away in this little armpit of downtown over by the Bengals Stadium. I just used to be really close to way more stuff. And one of the things I miss was being right around the corner from the Weston Art Gallery because the Weston always has some really interesting art exhibits.

On my way to the bus after work tonight, I was by the Weston and stopped in to see their current exhibition…

The current exhibition was called Emily Moores’s Felt Embrace. It’s an undulating and ornate suspended installation comprised of wood, paper, and fabric in the Weston’s street-level space…

In her intricate and ethereal installations, Emily Moores (Cincinnati, OH) investigates the affective dimensions of texture: the intimate interaction with an individual’s feelings and body without physical touch. Responding to the vertical expanse of the Weston’s street-level atrium,  Moores constructs Felt Embrace, a new suspended installation assembled from folded and cut paper and fabric that combines ornamentation and patterns in a unified monumental mass, fragile and detailed, yet also ominous and tumultuous. With this new installation, Moores’s recent addition of bold color into her work creates greater impact and dynamic contrast to its architectural setting.

It’s a really beautiful exhibition. I’ll have to try to stop back on Friday to see what is on display in their lower level.  😀🖼️🎨❤️

I just love this view from the ninth floor of 302 West Third Street…

And I also love looking up at Carew Tower as I’m walking down Fourth Street on my way to catch the Metro 17 bus home…

Good evening from downtown Cincinnati. 😀🌇❤️

Oh, and the little #CincyStreetBot in the crosswalk at Walnut and Seventh Streets doesn’t look like it’s holding up so well…

🙁🤖❤️

Good morning & good evening.

Good morning from Northside. And good morning from my downtown office window at Grey Midwest looking out at the Ohio River and Roebling Suspension Bridge…

And good evening from our backyard in Northside…

Good morning and good evening from Cincinnati. 😀🌄❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

The building at the corner of Main and Eighth Street is really coming along…

But I still can’t believe there won’t be any on-site parking. 😀🚧❤️

The setting sun made the Hyatt Regency look glow really red tonight…

😀🌆❤️

It was another rainy day.

It was another rainy day in Cincinnati. 😀🌧️☔️❤️

A grey day to be back at Grey.

It was a very grey and rainy day to be back downtown at Grey

But it was a wonderful really long thirteen-day holiday break. 😀🗓️🌧️❤️

Holiday break.

I won’t be here for the next thirteen days…

I have a vacation day tomorrow. And then Grey Midwest decided to close the office from December 23rd until January 2nd. Thirteen days off with nothing to do and nowhere to go. This is going to be a very relaxing staycation. 😀🗓️❤️
