Here are some panos that I shot over at the beautiful Memorial Hall in Cincinnati. Memorial hall was designed by the famed Cincinnati architecture firm Samuel Hannaford & Sons. Also be sure to check out the pano for the American Classical Music Hall of Fame which has it’s home in Memorial Hall.
Here is a view from on stage in the Springer Auditorium at the Cincinnati Music Hall. I shot this image right after the final rehearsal for the evening performance by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra of “Latin Nights” featuring guest conductor Kristjan Jarvi, who is the brother of the orchestra’s Music Director, Paavo Jarvi. The music featured a true master on the Bandonean (South American button accordion), Carel Kraayenhof. Selections were from Ginastera, Piazzolla, and Revueltas. Go to my Music Hall page to see this and 2 more panos from the auditorium and 1 from the Foyer here.
A pano featuring the strange and wonderful interior stylings over at Lightborne Productions. I really like the “Dinosaur Spine” stairway. Make sure to visit the Lightborne page to see all 4 panos especially the “Green Corridor.”
Here is a panorama I did for Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy. Visit the CHCA page to see a couple more and a link to the whole collection of 14 panos in action over at the school’s website.
Here is one of two new panoramas that I made of St. Rose Church. The interior was recently repainted so I returned to document the new look. Be sure to visit the St. Rose page to see both panos and find links to the previous tour so that you can compare for yourself the old and the new.
Every year during the Labor Day holiday weekend a local radio station hosts an end of the summer blow out party on the banks of the Ohio River. One of the events is a Rubber Duck Regatta that benefits the local Free Store Foodbank. To publicize the event there is a giant inflatable rubber duck on top of the Wegman Building along Interstate 75 just north of downtown Cincinnati. I was wondering what kind of view the duck has and now I know and so can you by viewing this panorama. A special thanks to Scott Wegman for getting me up there.
The people of All Saints Parish wanted to create a building in which the sacred is evident and that is modest and simple yet beautiful. They hired design architect Duncan Stroik, whose firm specializes in ecclesiastical design, to help them achieve their goal. Not only did they succeed in their goal but also have proven “it is still possible to build a beautiful church in an ordinary parish with a limited budget.” See all the panoramas here.
Slightly unusual viewpoint featured in this pano.
Enjoy this Pano from the Dublin (Ohio that is) Irish Festival taken on Saturday evening August,1 2009. The band is the great traditional Irish band Dervish. This pano was shot during a more subdued moment but by the end of the set the fairly sizable crowd was hoppin’. The Dublin Irish Festival is one of the larger Irish festivals in the mid-west.
A small Catholic college in Santa Paula, California that uses the “Great Books” curriculum. There is a new chapel that was just nearing completion when these panos were made. It has since been finished. The college’s website has a nice photo essay explaining all about the chapel which can be seen here.
This is a large tour of 15 panos and benefits greatly by viewing in fullscreen mode. There is a map to help with navigation. Be sure to click the little fullscreen button on the menu bar in the lower left corner after opening the pano.
Their website says “The World’s Greatest Outdoor Bookstore” and perhaps it is. There aren’t too many outdoor bookstores in my neck of the woods (Cincinnati). I certainly recommend checking it out if you are in the neighborhood of Ojai, California. Very cool indeed. You may even spy a “celebrity” or two while there. They have a huge supply of books ranging from the 35 cent honor system books that line the bookshelves out on the sidewalk to rare out-of-print first editions.
The Sky Bridge is in the Red River Gorge Geological Area of Eastern Kentucky. This area contains the highest concentration of natural arches in the Eastern United States. It is also a haven for rock climbers and hikers. Located in Powell County, Ky. There are lots of great places to visit there.
Chimney Top is a formation in the Red River Gorge, KY. Here it looks like a large rock ship plowing it’s way through the green ocean of the forest. You can see Half Moon Rock off in the distance. If you like interesting rock formations, hiking, rock climbing, etc. this is the place to visit.
The Natural Bridge is the most visited arch in the area. It is the centerpiece for the Natural Bridge State Park in Kentucky. It is accessible by trail or by a sky-lift. Lots of other great activities in the area for visitors.
Sometimes called the “Niagra” of the South, Cumberland Falls also claims to be the only place in the western hemisphere to be able to see a “moonbow” during every month’s full moon in the mist from the falls. I wasn’t there at the right time to see the moonbow, but a trip to Cumberland Falls is worth it for all the scenic beauty in the area.
This is a very dramatic arch accompanied by 2 very large rock shelters on 2 levels with the arch in between. Yahoo Falls is the highest waterfall in Kentucky.
Here are a couple panos from an abandoned building on Clay Street in Cincinnati.
