Metro+Transit.

Cincinnati Metro has moved to the Transit app with EZ Fare

The Transit app with EZ Fare gives Cincinnati riders a single, seamless way to pay for almost all of our rides. You can now buy and store passes for Metro, NKY’s Tank, Butler County RTA and the streetcar CB Connector all in one place. Unfortunately, it doesn’t offer a way to pay for the $30 Regional Stored-Value Cards that I like to use. I’ll still have to purchase those at one of the streetcar stations. But it’s still nice to have a couple of Metro passes and CB Connector passes stored in the transit app just in case of emergency. It’s pretty cool really.

Speaking of pretty cool, look at how tall the building is getting across the street from where I used to work…

And I accidentally snapped this photo on the bus, but I kinda like it…

I like riding the bus. 😀🚌🚧❤️

Downtown details.

This is the view from Grey Midwest‘s big conference room overlooking the Cincinnati Bengals Paul Brown Stadium, John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge and Ohio River…

And walking to catch the Metro 17 bus home after work, I got to admire the new building across the street from where I used to work as it continues to rise…

😀🚧❤️

Downtown details.

A while back, I did a kind of lackluster job of documenting my walk from work across downtown to catch the bus at Government Square. I gave it another pass tonight with similar results. I leave work and walk down McFarland Street…

This new graffiti just popped up the other day on Egan Alley…

I cross Elm Street and walk down Benham Alley…

There’s the construction site at Race and Fourth Streets with two tower cranes…

I walk down Fourth Street passed Unheardof sneaker shop…

On the other side of Vine Street, I walk by Aster on Fourth and the FC|C offices which were recently painted purple on the first two floors…

And I walk by the FC|C team shop

I walk by Dixie Terminal and Renaissance Hotel on Fourth Street and turn up Walnut Street to get Government Square on Fifth Street…

I really missed some key landmarks. Again. I’ll have to try to do a better job of documenting my walk from work down Fourth Street to catch the bus at Government Square. Maybe the third time will be the charm.  😀🏙️🚧❤️

Downtown details.

There was a big construction cone party out in front of Dixie Terminal on Fourth Street this morning…

It has to be some sort of joke right? 😀🚧❤️

Downtown details.

Good evening from my old stomping grounds at Eighth and Main Streets…

Good evening from downtown Cincinnati. 😀🏙️❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

The building across the street from where I used to work is getting so tall

That building is going up in a hurry. 😀🚧❤️

Downtown details.

Most days Genifer picks me up from work. But on Tuesday and Friday evenings, I ride the bus home. I leave work and walk down Fourth Street. I walk by this construction site with TWO tower cranes…

And the future site of a Kitty’s Coffee…

Fourth Street has a lot of pretty architecture…

We’ll have to check out Aster sometime soon…

I walk down Fourth Street to Walnut Street. And as I walk up Walnut, I walk by the Renaissance Hotel

I wait for the bus at Government Square. And when I get on the bus, it goes right by the building that was getting built across the street from where I used to work

It’s grown considerably since I moved on to much greener pastures. It’s grown to six floors now in just over six weeks. It’s not a bad walk across downtown at all.

I’ll have to do a better job of documenting my walk down Fourth Street to catch the bus at Government Square. 😀🏙️🚧❤️

A Grey Friday.

As promised, I switched desks at work today. I wasn’t the only person. Almost everyone shifted desks at work today. Here was my old set-up…

And here is my new set-up…

Pretty much exactly the same. Just a little bit further from the window. Bit of a bummer.

And that makes this, the last WyzeCam photo from Grey Midwest

Dang. At least, they brought in a whole bunch of different McDonalds breakfast stuffs for the big move this morning…

I ate a bacon, egg & cheese biscuit and almost immediately didn’t feel good. And that’s why I don’t eat McDonalds.

The view from the other side of Grey’s floor looking east is so pretty. I love all the highways overlapping each other and there are some train tracks over there with the Ohio River and the rolling hills in the background…

And those clouds…

If I could set-up a WyzeCam looking out of this window. I would probably watch this view all day long. I’d never get anything done.

On the bus ride home, I got to see the progress they’ve been making on the building they were constructing across from where I used to work…

They’ve really made some progress. And I finally feel like have too. 🤔💻📷🚧❤️

My last day at Deskey.

After six years, today was my last day at Deskey. This is what my office looked like at the end of last week before I accepted the offer for my new position…

And here’s what it looked like this morning…

I’m going to miss being able to see Carew Tower out of my office window…

I’m not going miss that terrible ArtWorks mural of the pale lady staring at me all day…

I’m really going to miss watching the construction across the street take shape…

You know it’s time to move on when that’s the thing you’re going to miss the most…

Thanks for a good six years, Deskey. Best wishes for your continued success. Say what you will, it’s definitely been an experience…

Turning the page, and onto the next chapter. We’ll be staying in Cincinnati. I’m joining the Midwest office of the Grey Group as a Senior Designer. I’m sooo excited about this new adventure.  My first day will be next Wednesday. 😀👋❤️

Constructing Cincinnati.

And they’re on to the next floor on the construction across the street
