My work set-up.

I took a photo of my set-up at work this morning. I have it pretty nice…

The MacBook and iPad are mine from home. Work provides the desktop with the dual monitors and the really nice view of downtown Cincinnati. πŸ˜€πŸ’»πŸ™οΈβ€οΈ

Downtown details.

Look at my window at work…

Just playing with my Moment 58mm Tele lens. I just love the vignetting in the corners of the photos with this lens.Β πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈπŸ“·β€οΈ

Mural, mural on the wall.

How cool is this new mural on the side of the Algin Furniture on Eighth Street?

It’s pretty cool that Algin has been using their wall for rotating murals. The last one was titled You hold the key.” This one is artist Joshua Stout and celebrates Cincinnati’s own little rockstar hippo, Fiona. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜€πŸ–ŒοΈπŸŽ¨β€οΈ

Constructing Cincinnati.

I’m still not sure what’s going on across the street from work…

It’s so foggy downtown.

It was very foggy today in downtown Cincinnati. Taken with Instagram. πŸ˜€πŸ™οΈβ˜οΈβ€οΈ

Constructing Cincinnati.

When I ride the Metro 17 bus downtown, I get off the bus at the corner of Walnut and Court Street right across from theΒ new downtown Kroger tower.Β When it’s completed, it will be 18-stories tall and be home to aΒ two-story supermarket, 139 apartments, and a six-story, 555-space parking garage. And it gets taller with each passing day…

I just don’t know what they’re trying to accomplish across the street from work

Downtown details.

I was running some errands around downtown Cincinnati this afternoon, and I was kind of shocked to see that the Tiffany & Co. at Vine and Fifth Streets had closed…

It’s real shame. A while back the downtown TJ Maxx moved across the river to Newport. Then the downtown Macy’s closed their doors. And now Tiffany has left. The only real place to any shopping in the Central Business District is Saks Fifth Avenue. It getting harder and harder to do holiday or birthday shopping in CBD. And that’s a real shame. Also a real shame is the huge, old beautiful pine tree they cut down to display on Fountain Square for a little over a month…

I wish they would just get a big fake tree or come up with some alternative to chopping down a very old tree every year. But in an effort to remain positive, downtown did recently get a Frisch’s Big Boy in Carew Tower on Fifth Street…

I’ll have to check out the new Big Boy soon. Honestly, I keep forgetting it’s over there.

I guess the world giveth and taketh away. It seems like CBD has been more on the taketh side lately. And that also is a real shame.

Three years ago…

Remember when the temperature hit 72ΒΊ outside a few years back?

That was crazy. And we had the Deskey holiday party up at Rhinegeist

We walked through the Holiday City Flea at Washington Party and then onto Rhinegeist and I remember to took me forever to stop sweating because it was so warm outside and I wore a jacket. Thanks for the fun memories, Timehop! πŸ˜€πŸ¦•β€οΈ

Tag! You’re it.

Every time I’d walk by this archway on my way down a little alley to go to Dunkin Donuts in downtown Cincinnati, I was always kind of shocked that there wasn’t any graffiti on it…

And there you go… Tag! You’re it. πŸ˜€πŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒοΈβ€οΈ

Oh, and I thought the light was really pretty between the buildings this morning on the way back to the office…

It’s a sign.

It’s a sign for Bay Horse Cafe on Main Street. πŸ˜€πŸŽβ€οΈ
