I finally had the chance to see The Woodward Opera House in Mount Vernon, Ohio. The theater operated from the 1850’s – 1920’s. What an interesting experience to stand in a theater vacated since the 1920’s! It’s likely that I had ancestors that visited this theater.
Part of the reason that this incredible building is standing is that it was part of a building that had many other uses. While theater might have only been used for storage, the rest of the building remained active.
This photo is one of my top favorites for the Winter of 2016.
I’ve spotted it while driving by many times before, but the snow and the evening sky made it perfect. I had my wife watch for traffic coming behind us, grabbed the camera and shot out the drivers window.
It was exciting to see the capture come to life as I opened it in Photoshop and began to manipulate it into what my mind seen.
I’ve made it to quite a few WACO club fly-ins in Mount Vernon, Ohio, so I’m letting the weather deter me this year. I did stop out last night to get a few shots. I nearly sank my van in the mud, so that’s about all the excitement I needed to find something else to do. If I’d never been to one of these fly-in’s I would have stayed regardless.
Here’s a shot that I did get in between rain storms.
