This door with a question mark was the last part of a house to stand during a demolition project in Newark, Ohio.
I found it symbolic because it was Obama money and money from banks sued for fraudulently repossessing homes that paid for the demolition. The mayor and other politicians take credit for the project. Questionable indeed.
Today’s photo is something different for me. It’s an interior shot of the Subway restaurant in Newark, Ohio. They kept the metal ceiling that has been in the building for many years. The place is really classy for a sub shop.
Interior photos are something different for me. This is an HDR from 2 different exposures.
That wasn’t all I did while out on the motorcycle today though. Here’s a blue sunset on Buckeye Lake.
In large cities, people holding signs isn’t that uncommon of a thing. In Newark, Ohio, it’s rare and this guy is a constant seen in the city. He shows up at times when you least expect him in all weather.
I must have over a hundred photos of The Licking County Courthouse. I work near the building and it’s the focal point of the downtown area. Every once in a while, I get one that stands out from the others.
Tonight was a fun night. See the guy poking his head around the corner? He had a problem with me taking a photo of the sign and wanted to argue about it. I left when he told me to wait right there because he’d be back. LOL.
Street photography intrigues me because of this idea. There’s no law against taking photos in the street. It’s 100% legal, but maybe not safe. What’s fun that’s safe anyhow?
I’m trying to find the limits of my equipment at night without a tripod. I love night photography, hate to carry tripods. It can be done without a tripod, but you have to just instinctively know the settings and how to maximize the light available.
I didn’t get this one sharp enough, but it’s worthy of posting for the project.
It was freezing today. The bitter cold stopped me from venturing to far for a photo, so this is what we get for today. It’s cranes up in the back alleys of Newark, Ohio.
These cranes irritate me and they shouldn’t. They should be a sign that downtown business are investing and that they’re optimistic of the future. I researched the projects and that’s not the whole story. I’m afraid to even write what the real story is for fear of being sued.
It’s a powerful and secretive club putting all of this together. I’ll leave it at that. If you’re interested, do the research yourself. It takes some digging to see how the money works for these projects.
Instead of writing about it and doing all of the work to talk about it, I’m going to take a back seat and watch it unfold. I’m getting older. It will be interesting to watch the younger generation cope with the outcomes of this. Will they learn a lesson about government’s role, businesses role, the press’s role, and a citizen’s duty?
