Saturday evening’s Cincy Winter Blues Fest in Downtown Cincinnati, was held at The Phoenix Hotel, and it was the perfect place! Built in 1893, the majestic Italian Renaissance architecture, high ceilings and wonderful acoustic qualities, and the soulful music, made it a memorable evening. Two ballrooms and two smaller rooms featured 16 bands over the course of the evening and as you can see the lighting was superb!
We wandered from room to room, usually standing, to hear the variety of blues bands singin’ the winter blues. This artist, Janiva Magness, was billed as one of the headliners. Her “tell it like it is” lyrics and seductive performance, made for an entertaining show.
It’s been over a week since I spent the day in Downtown Cincinnati for the Reds Baseball Opening Day celebration, but I have a few more photos I’d like to share with you. I’m always on the lookout for creative and/or artistic photographic opportunities and I think this staircase fits that description.
I’ve never attended the Findlay MarketParade or festivities for the Reds Baseball Opening Day in Cincinnati…up until Monday! It was tons of fun! The parade winds around Downtown. We were at Fountain Square, where there were booths, music, food and drink! I went with a few girlfriends and wanted to share some of our fun with you. It wasn’t rainy…this photo is of a cool water feature in the Banks area of Downtown Cincinnati.
Lost in the Details is this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge! I’m still amazed that every time I participate in a challenge, I learn something new. I interpreted this challenge to mean when we take a photo…if we look closely…there is so much more to see. Some of the photos required cropping and I was pleased with the creativity I was able to utilize with choosing the photos and with the process of what part of the photo to crop.
This was one of my favorites. It’s a cropped version of the 2nd photo and was taken in Ft. Myers, Florida in November, 2012. I like the way the letters on the other side show through. It’s the simple things that make me happy!
