Cinco de Mayo, Over-the-Rhine, et cetera

The following photos were taken between May 1 and May 12, 2009.

The first photos, from Fountain Square and Nada, were taken during the Cinco de Mayo celebration.

The rest of the Downtown photos were taken while illustrating the Linda's Mini Mart story, and the Over-the-Rhine shots were taken while capturing the blighted building at Vine Street and Hust Alley. (The Pleasant Street pic was snapped after trying to get photos of two buildings at Elm and Green streets. There were far too many drug dealers for me to get the shots.)

The Queensgate shots were taken from the 12th floor of the Quality Inn during a meeting on the Brent Spence Bridge alternatives, and the Xavier University photos were taken while walking to photograph the Hoff Academic Quad project.

Finally, the Madeira shot is a throw-away from a story on Bradford Place and the Lower Price Hill photo was taken to illustrate a story on Queensgate Terminals.

The 28 photos in this slideshow have been added to the following galleries:

These galleries, and those of dozens of other Greater Cincinnati communities, can be found in the drop-down menu at the top of the right-hand column.
