Cincinnati, a cornucopia of abandonments

Cincinnati, a cornucopia of abandonments
Authored by Sherman Cahal on June 9, 2009 at Abandoned

On a warm but delightful day, I gathered on the rooftop deck of my apartment unit with the authors of Cincinnati Discovery and Local.Architecture:Cincinnati, enjoying several delicious, locally-produced beers while basking in the warmth of the sun's rays.

But alas, there were several abandonments to be had in the fair city of Cincinnati. It's not that there is an overabundance, but a rather careful arrangement and selection of disused and derelict structures. Shuttered factories, a reminder of the region's once booming industrial past, line Mill Creek Valley. Furthermore, destitute churches litter the city's most stressed neighborhoods, a reminder of the population shifts of the prior fourty years. For this lazy Sunday, we photographed two of Cincinnati's prized abandoned gems: Some Random Church and back again Hudepohl Brewing Company.

I've also added several links to web-sites that I frequently visit. The first is 360icon, an exploration of rural and urban decay through low-light photography and HDR. I also added Cincinnati Traction History, dedicated to showcasing the history of the Cincinnati area's streetcar, interurban, and railroad lines. Lastly, a friend just began Craig Moyer Photography as a method to showcase his works of art.

thanks, I like your photography. The topic of abandonment in the northeast and midwestern United States is very sad and fascinating at the same time. It shows how land (including built, and formerly populated places) are used like paper cups in the U.S. without much regard to their history, culture, and natural value.
