Downtown walking, spring colors abound

On a March 17 stroll through Downtown, things still felt a bit dull and drab. By the end of the month, I had to find some places that had some bright colors.

The Downtown photos were taken during a stroll from Fountain Square to Arnold's for St. Patrick's Day. I then made my way back to the Square.

A couple in the middle, the GreenSource Cincinnati shot and the photo of Covington City Hall, were taken for Building Cincinnati stories.

The Cincinnati Union Terminal shots were taken following a long night of insomnia, and the Neon's Unplugged ones were taken two days before its grand opening.

These 22 photos have been added to the following galleries:

These galleries, and those of dozens of Greater Cincinnati communities, can be found in the drop-down menu in the right-hand column. Click on each photo to enlarge it to 800 x 600.
