Walking In My Neighborhood

When you sit behind the wheel of a car, you miss a lot.

When you hit the street on foot, you have the time to really soak up your surroundings.

Especially when your tour guide is Mr. Park Plus, Dan Korman.

We each were craving some quality time together, and a walk was the perfect remedy.
The water is wide, I cannot get o'er. One of my favorite songs from my choral days.

When was the last time you saw one of these scrub brush thingys outside a residence? Baller.

A secret house on a secret street in Downtown Cincinnati. Truly. Have been in the vicinity of this house a million times, and never even knew this street existed. Want to know where it is? You'll just have to join us for a walk.

Secret garden courtyard found in a hidden alley. We gazed through the wrought iron gate, wondering about the folks who get to enjoy this special space. The jury's out on if this is a private residence or a swanky enclave for the elite.

A nice bit of molding in CBD...

And a nice bit of molding in OtR. This trim is on a stretch of dodgy, vacant buildings. Just look at the architectural treasure you can find in my neighborhood. They just don't build stuff like they used to.

Sometimes you have to just look up to see something stunning.

That is SO weird--I worked in the Hanke Building (last pic) for 6+ years and never noticed the detail on the underside of that balconette. Crazy.

Now I'm trying to guess the location of the other places...
