I recently traveled to downtown Cincinnati Ohio for an episode of Tourist in your Town, my travel podcast. While there, I managed to capture a few photos. Prints are available, just click on the image and it will take you straight to the page!
Ezzard Charles, also known as the Cincinnati Cobra, was an American boxer and former World Heavyweight Champion. Some say he is the greatest boxer of all time. I don’t know a thing about boxing, so I’m not the one to ask. I do know that this mural is a great tribute to a local hero.
The Skystar Ferris Wheel
This ferris wheel is located right on the banks of the Ohio River. This view is from the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati. You can see Northern Kentucky just across the river.
This image was taken as we walked through the warehouse to enter the underground tunnels on our walking tour.
If you want to know more about my visit, be sure to listen to the podcast. You can find it anywhere you listen to podcasts. You can also visit the website, Tourist in your Town.

“Boot Fan” is one of my most popular images. It has sold more than any of my other photos. It’s one of my own favorites, as well.
Where did the boots come from?
Everyone wonders where those beautiful boots were found. They belong to a good friend who is a boot fan. Well, she’s more than a boot fan, maybe addict is a better word. She has great taste, so I’m not knocking it. When I saw her wearing the first pair, I knew I had to do some photos of them. When I got to her house and found lots more boots, I knew we were going to make some beautiful photos.
What’s with the texture under the boots?
When looking around for someplace to shoot the boots. I noticed that she had this big, cool looking rock in her front yard. With it’s gray and red colors and the natural texture of the rock, it made the perfect backdrop. We shot several different setups. Some with boots on their sides and a little haphazard.
We did some with single pairs. I love these images, but they are not as popular as the Boot Fan.

Cathedral of St. Vitus Eastern facade where the Gothic architecture is most visible with its flying buttresses and great stained glass windows.
Glass ornaments filled with colorful ribbons hang in a shop window in Budapest. The glass balls reflect the whole building across the street, while the window reflects just part of it.
Jessamine County Courthouse in Nicholasville, KY is Victorian style architecture, finished in 1879. It felt very Gothic to me, so I finished it with a spooky sky and vignette.
Rural Gas Station Black and White. We found this empty gas station in rural East Tennessee. There are still items inside but the floor has fallen in, so we could not go in.
Cat sister, Mavis and Maya, play together. The two brown and white tabby girls are about 7 months old.
Bicyclists on the streets of Budapest, Hungary.
Time for the train is a collage of pocket watches and a photo of a steam train. Trains and pocket watches go together.
The Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial in downtown Knoxville, TN depicts 3 of the leaders of women suffrage campaigns in Tennessee.
Jackson Warehouse Apartments is located in the historic Shockoe Bottom district of Richmond, Virginia. The tall red brick building with the sign painted on the side is what city life is all about.
City Glass & Mirror is located in downtown Clinton, TN. Faded and chipped but still readable the sign drew my eye.
