Over the Rhine Photo Walk   Leave a comment

I participated in a photo walk in Over the Rhine (OTR) this morning. There were about twenty people participating. OTR is one of the older neighborhoods in Cincinnati (though not the oldest), and is undergoing revitalization. One of the major aspects has been a total renovation of Washington Park.

This bandstand was built in 1911, replacing one that was erected during the Civil War.

Across the street was an abandoned old church.

At the top, a plant was growing.

Next door was Music Hall, home of the Cincinnati Symphony.

This bike rack was in two parts, which made the shape of the state of Ohio.

I was drawn to the colors, rod iron and stained glass on the buildings.

It was a very interesting walk in an area of town I don’t often go. The times I have been in OTR, I’ve been more concerned with where I was going to look at the details.
