2012 St. Leon Pole Raising

This virtual tour has 3 pano views showing different stages of the 2012 St. Leon Pole Raising. Other than the weather being a bit more gloomy, the St. Leon Pole Raising was about the same as I described it in the pano tour I did of the 2008 Pole Raising: “Every 4 years, on the 2nd Saturday […]

Loome Theological Booksellers

This bookstore in Stillwater, Minnesota specializes in “providing discerning readers with hard-to-find scholarly and classic Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, and related books…” The panotour you see here will be serving as a memorial of sorts to the bookstore housed in an old church. The owners are moving the business to a new location in the late […]

The Church of St. Agnes

This very beautiful church in the “FrogTown” area of Saint Paul, Minnesota is the home of the Twin Cities Catholic Chorale. It is one of only a handful of Churches dedicated to maintaining the Catholic Church’s tradition of musical excellence in the context of the Sacred Liturgy. The Chorale presents a full season of choral Masses with […]

Roebling Suspension Bridge, Cincinnati

This mini tour has 2 pano views, one from the top of each tower of the Roebling Suspension Bridge that connects Cincinnati, Ohio and Covington, Kentucky.

Western And Southern Open, Tennis 2011

As the 2012 version of this event is rapidly approaching, I thought I would post a mini-tour of the Lindner Family Tennis Center during the 2011 version of the Western and Southern Open. This  prestigious event is one of only 9 ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments held annually throughout the world. This tournament first started […]

These are museum quality and fine pieces of art as well as functional tools. He also makes throwing hawks that are in high demand for those who enjoy the sport of tossing tomahawks. I personally have […]

Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza / Palm Court

The Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza Hotel is a nice example of French Art-Deco architecture. Much of the decorative work was created in France several years before construction of the building and exhibited at the 1925 Exhibition of Decorative Art in Paris. The three panoramas included in this tour feature the Palm Court area which contain […]

2012 Business Courier Book of Lists – Virtual Tour of Cincinnati Landmarks

For the 2012 Cincinnati Business Courier Book of Lists cover photo, I needed to create a high resolution photograph from the Carew Tower Observation Deck. This was a close approximation of the viewpoint I used for an earlier “tower pano” that I produced for my website. A higher resolution image was needed to accommodate the […]
